Kangxi reign, Qing dynasty plate with floral decorations.

The round form, shallow bowl or plate is decorated in underglaze cobalt blue. It has a shaped rim and is hand painted with central floral part and designs with floral panels painted around the rim and streching towards the center.

The plate has also floral designs painted to the underside of the rim. It is marked with two concentric circles. Probably made in the early Kangxi reign during the ongoing period of uncertainty. The use of reign marks on porcelain was restricted in the period. That's why empty two rings were used among others.

Kangxi transitional porcelain was manufactured at China’s principle ceramic production area of Jingdezhen. In 1683 the production of 'official imperial ware' was resumed. Blue-and-white never ceased to be made at Jingdezhen. The Kangxi Emperor (1662-1722) is considered one of the greatest ‘Chinese’ emperors. Early on in his reign the Emperor already engaged a gifted porcelain painter, Liu Yuan. His designs influenced also commercial kilns.
