A matching Pair of Chinese round plates of the Qianlong era, c. 1770. The plates are painted with cobalt blue under the glaze in a traditional pattern comprising warblers and partridges set in a background of peonies and blossoming pine foliage. There is a scroll of floral design on the borders. The plates are plain to the reverse. Overall, this near identical pair, with only minor variations reflecting their hand-painted nature, is in fabulous authentic condition for plates that are 250 years old. One plate has very minor chips to the underside only. Each plate is reproduced in the accompanying photographs.
When the Qianlong emperor ascended to the Chinese throne in 1736, the 25-year-old monarch was one of the richest men in the world. He could afford to indulge his appetite for the finer things in life during his more than 60 years on the throne. His reign is considered one of the greatest periods in the history of Chinese art. Chinese ceramics was at its peak in many ways during this time and plates of this era were sought after around the world. This pair is understood to have been in an English country house until recently brought onto the market.
