Two famille rose plates, both with similar decorations. The colorful painting is stylistically quite delicately executed, in part with gold. Inside are peony blossoms, pomegranates, garlands, while the border presents widely spread, stylized bat wings - the symbolic meaning is luck, many children and long life. On the rim is a similar floral depiction, but additionally with finger lemon (gouyuan, "Buddha hand fruit") and other little blossoms.
Dimensions: DIAMETER 22.5 CM & 22.9 CM
Condition: Good condition, minor firing faults. On one of the plates with two hairline cracks on the glaze (one on the top and one on the bottom). The paint of the decor still well preserved.
Provenance: Swedish private collection
