Lot details

China, 1662-1722. The central dish of six-lobed form enameled in green, yellow, aubergine, black, and white with three fierce sinuous dragons chasing flaming pearls amid wispy flames, the rim with a diapered pattern interrupted by plum blossoms, the exterior with stylized bamboo sprays. The six surrounding fan-shaped dishes with foliate upper rims similarly decorated with a single dragon each. (7)

Expert’s note: It is extremely rare to find a complete seven-piece set from the Kangxi period with both the biscuit porcelain and the enamels in such pristine condition.

Provenance: Stefanos Lagonico, Alexandria, and thence by descent over several generations in the same family. Each dish with an old printed and handwritten label ‘No. 4603’ to base. Stefanos Lagonico was a member of the wealthy Greek community of Alexandria whose family settled in Egypt in the late 19th century. His collection of important Iznik ceramics was formed after the First World War, comprising mostly plates and jugs from the classic period (post 1570). At least six pieces from this collection were included in the important 1925 Exposition d'Art Musulman in Alexandria. Lagonico eventually left Egypt for Switzerland, just before the rise of nationalism and the abolition of the Capitulations in May 1937. His son Jean, an importer of dried fruits and nuts from the Levant, inherited most of the collection, and kept it in obscurity at his house in southern France until its dispersal at auction beginning in 1991.
Condition: Superb condition with only minor old wear, some expected firing flaws, and light surface scratches.

Weight: 389.6 g (the central dish) and 1,252 g (the six surrounding dishes in total)
Dimensions: Diameter 39.5 cm (total) and 19 cm (the central dish), length 19 cm (each of the six surrounding dishes)

Auction: Aguttes, Paris, 31 May 2022, lot 66
Price: EUR 20,150
Description: Ensemble de sept raviers en biscuit et émaux de la famille verte, XVIIIe Siècle, période Kangxi
Expert remark: Compare the closely related form, diapered band with plum blossoms, and famille verte decoration on the biscuit porcelain. Note the similar size (40 cm).



康熙素三彩龍紋攢盤
中國,1662-1722年。此攢盤是由一個內盤和六個外盤共同組成葵花式,造型優美,設色雅緻明麗,構圖疏朗有致;綠地龍紋,線條挺拔,畫工精良。如此完好的康熙龍紋攢盤,實屬難得。

來源:亞歷山大港Stefanos Lagonico,在同一家族保存了幾代。每一個盤底都有一個打印並手寫的標籤No. 4603。 Stefanos Lagonico是富有的亞歷山大希臘社區的成員,他的家人在十九世紀後期定居在埃及。他的重要伊茲尼克陶瓷收藏是在第一次世界大戰後建立的,主要包括古典時期(1570 年後)的盤子和水壺。該系列中至少有六件作品曾在 1925 年亞歷山大港藝術博覽會中展覽。後來,Lagonico 離開埃及前往瑞士,就在 1937 年 5 月民族主義興起和投降條約廢除之前。他的兒子 Jean 是黎凡特干果和堅果的進口商,他繼承了大部分藏品,並一直默默無聞地保存在他法國南部的房子裏,直到 1991 年開始被拍賣。
品相:狀況極佳,只有輕微的磨損、一些燒製缺陷和輕微的表面劃痕。

重量:内盤389.6克,六個外盤1,252 克

Important Changes to Our Terms and Conditions

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

For further reading about non-payers at auction, go here: https://www.zacke.at/aboutnonpayers/.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
  • A Guarantee Claim, however, can only be raised after the purchase price has been paid in full by the buyer and within 45 days after the auction day.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at office@zacke.at.

By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms of Auction and Terms and Conditions.
