Nieuwe pagina 11
A superb blue and white decorated Chinese porcelain 'klapmuts' bowl with Long Eliza patterns, marked Chenghua, Kangxi period, 18th century
On offer is this wonderful Chinese porcelain bowl of inverted bell form, hand decorated under glaze in blue on milky white. The traditional name for this type of bowl is 'klapmuts'.
The bowl is decorated on the outside with a continuous decoration of four elegant oriental ladies (sometimes called 'Long Eliza's'or 'Lange Lijzen'), active in a garden pavilion. The inside is finely painted with three boys playing near a lake. The inside and outside flared rim is decorated with flower filled reserves and precious items, alternating with a diaper pattern. It is marked with the Chenghua six character mark within concentric circles, suggesting an older period, but applied on top quality Kangxi ware
The bowl is in excellent condition, without chips or repairs, but has a faint and light hairline at one side of c. 3,5'' long. This is hardly visible on the outside, and only visible on the inside by close inspection, not detracting from the wonderful appearance of this superb piece of Chinese export porcelain. Please view the pictures, which give a good impression of both quality and condition of this rare object, that displays very nicely.
This large bowl was made in China ca. 1700. The elaborate decoration and the deep blue color which were used, indicate that it was made during the Kangxi period (1662-1722). Many Chinese products were exported to Europe. Oriental porcelain was imported to The Netherlands by the Dutch East Indies Company (V.O.C.), which had commercial privileges to China and Japan. The wealthy Dutch upper class adored the subtle china ware and large quantities were shipped to Holland in the 17th and 18th centuries. Although manufactured to be used, most of this Oriental porcelain was displayed in special China cabinets or on top of furniture in distinguished houses. This klapmuts originates from a private Dutch estate.
The bowl measures over 8 inches (205 mm) across and stands nearly 4 inches (97 mm) high. I guarantee age (c. 1700) and authenticity (Kangxi period) of this wonderful and rare collector's item, as described above.
