Antique Chinese 16th C Ming Wanli Blue & White Kraak Charger, Huge 51 Cm For Sale

Antique Chinese 16th C Ming Wanli Blue & White Kraak Charger, Huge 51 Cm

Click here to visit our website.
Visit us at 3574 Mt Diablo Blvd, Lafayette, CA 94549! Kraak Charger with Landscape Scene(WBW031302) Late 16th century, ca. 1580-90
Wanli Period, Ming Dynasty
Porcelain with underglaze cobalt blue
d: 51 cm / 20 in
Professional restoration. Hard to determine what was fixed, but I think a piece has been re-stuck, and several hairlines covered
From a Northern California private collection Monumental at 51 cm in diameter, this charger is among the largest "Kraak" type wares ever recorded. It has been professionally restored, but in my opinion is still a masterpiece of late Ming porcelain. The painted composition is superb, allowing us detailed view into a late Ming landscape rarely found on kraak porcelain. Most pieces of this same type are substantially smaller, and generally feature roughly drawn scenes of birds or deer in a microcosmic world. That this charger is so well painted with a classic Chinese-taste "mountain and river" scene, with half-hidden buildings and a scholar rider, is highly unusual.

About Ascot Court Antiques Ascot Court Antiques is a family-run gallery based in Moraga, California. We specialize in authentic antique Chinese ceramics. Our clients include local northern Californian collectors and other enthusiasts from the greater international Chinese ceramics community. The trade and diaspora of Chinese works of art has been truly extraordinary in both temporal and geographical scope. In this sense, we hope to further a long tradition of connoisseurship and intercultural dialogue by safekeeping pieces of aesthetic and historical value.
