AN IRON-RED AND GREEN-ENAMELED ‘DRAGON’ DISH, KANGXI PERIOD
康熙礬紅銅綠釉龍紋盤

Sold for €7,800

including Buyer's Premium


Lot details

China, 1662-1722. Finely potted with deep curving sides, decorated in the center of the well with a large writhing iron-red five-clawed dragon pursuing the flaming pearl amidst wispy flames, all within a green ruyi-head border, the exterior decorated with four striding dragons each pursuing a flaming pearl.

Provenance: From an important European private collection, and thence by descent to the last owner. The base lacquered with an inventory number, ‘P807’.
Condition: Good condition, commensurate with age, some wear and firing irregularities, fritting to rim. Good, consistent sound.

Weight: 782 g
Dimensions: Diameter 28.2 cm

The base with an apocryphal underglaze-blue six-character mark da Ming Chenghua nianzhi within a double circle.

Literature comparison:
The dragons painted on the present dish are stylistically closely related to those painted on iron-red-decorated wares made during the Zhengde reign. Compare a related Zhengde-marked 'dragon' bowl, painted with two iron-red dragons striding above green-enameled waves, in the Idemitsu Museum, illustrated in Chinese Ceramics in the Idemitsu Museum, Tokyo, 1986, no. 176. Compare a Zhengde-marked iron-red decorated dragon dish at Christie’s London, 14 May 2013, lot 248.

Auction result comparison:
Type: Closely related
Auction: Christie’s New York, 23 March 2012, lot 2086
Price: USD 6,250 or approx. EUR 8,000 converted and adjusted for inflation at the time of writing
Description: An iron-red-decorated ‘dragon’ dish, Kangxi period
Expert remark: Compare the closely related decoration, the main difference being that the ruyi border enclosing the dragon to the interior of the dish is enameled in blue (and not green as in the present lot). Note the similar size (27.9 cm). Further note that this lot was in restored condition, according to Christie’s, which most likely was the reason for the rather low auction result.
