£700    $911    €833
This is a shell-shaped and kakiemon style plate , with a charming "Two Quails" pattern, dating from circa 1820.
 
Kakiemon is a genre of Japanese porcelain characterized by an overglaze, often referred to as "enamel" finish. Originating in the mid-17th century Edo period, it was primarily produced in factories surrounding the town of Arita in the Hizen province of Japan, now known as Saga Prefecture. The potter Sakaida Kakiemon, active in the mid-seventeenth century, was among the first in Japan to unlock the secret of decorating porcelain with enamel, a technique known as akae.
 
Towards the late seventeenth century, Kakiemon porcelain began to be exported from Japan to Europe via the Dutch East India Company. Its interaction with European cultural tastes led to the style being emulated by Meissen, followed by Chelsea, Worcester, and Derby in the early eighteenth century.
 
The plate features the Derby mark, which includes a crown and the letter D. This trademark was in use from 1784 to 1825. However, the marking started to become less precise after 1820, indicating the manufacturing period to be between 1820 and 1825.
 
The dimensions of the plate are 255mm X240mm.
 
The height is 45mm
 
Weight 600 grams
 
The plate is quite deep - apparently it was used as a dessert plate.
 
The shape of the plate is very unusual, making it very attractive to collectors.
 
Condition
 
There are two small chips to the enamel on the reverse - hardly noticeable
 
A spider web of cracks on the enamel on the reverse side - apparently a consequence of the two hundred years of age of the plate.
 
Otherwise the plate looks great, almost imperceptible loss of paint and gilding.
 
Please carefully regard all photos.
