Subject:18th Century Qianlong Blue Willow Plate
Posted By: Bokaba Sat, Jul 29, 2017 IP: 172.250.142.6

I recently purchased this Blue Willow pattern plate. It appears to be early-mid Qianlong period (perhaps 1750 or so) in an octagonal form. The painting is exceptional for Blue Willow export patterns that I have seen. Any thoughts?

Thank you

Bokaba

Just be aware that copies of earlier export wares were made at the beginning of the 20th C. Learn to differentiate between the two types and you might do all right.

Your plate dates from the 1795-1805 period. See Howards' "New York and the China Trade" illustration C-42. He describes the unusually fine enamel work. The willow pattern is more often associated with the less finessed painting seen on "Canton ware" of the later 19th century. In fact, the willow pattern is a very old one. The earliest I can actually document its use in export is a plate made in 1715 for both the domestic and export markets. This one done in iron red, but I guess the more popular blue and white exists in this design from the same period.

If you go to ebay.uk you will find an almost exact plate as yours. The ebay no. is 253059901877. I would do it asap as the sale closes soon and you will get an idea about retail (at least auction) value.

Dear Bokaba

The painting is indeed fine - very fine - but does anyone else get a weird vibe off the back of the plate? Is it abnormal that both the footrim and the glaze on the back is so white looking?

The rim looks pretty perfect to me other than that; I mean, the form looks pretty well perfect. Is it possible that this form of export ware could have such a white rear?
