    This is 8" in diameter, no markings on the back. Can anyone help me identify a possible time frame?

      It could be my imagination, but this looks very interesting! Chinese Folk Art? I'd say there is a specific story being told here. The old man holding two boughs, one in bloom and one not. The boy reaching for them. And the jars buried in the soil of the tree. "The moral to this story is........."

      Thank you for posting, I am going to follow this!

      Thank-you for your interest, Sunnybrook, and your keen observations. I had not thought of those being jars in the tree! I have no idea how my elderly aunt, living in the Canadian prairies, never travelling anywhere, had this in her possession. It is in a red velvet-covered wooden frame and looks cool on my wall.

      no this aint folk art this is or kangxi revival or real kangxi
    4. blackpin123, 1 year ago
      apostata , thank-you so much for your comment. I will do some googling to see what I can learn. Is there anything more you can tell me off hand, though -- time frame, any value, etc.? Thanks again for your interest.

      no i am not an expert in this, there are a some kind of brown rims

      kangxi brown 1662-1722
      yongzheng brown 1723-1735
      batavia brown qianlong brown 1736-1795
      revival kangxi 1890

      to me the whole plate is strange , because the purper of the flowers ought to be related qianlong

      this is not a normal kangxi colour combination combination

      the value is about 70 dollar i think

      f... i did it again , and again , and again,and i just don,t know it consumes me

      sorry to intrude , this piece is obsessing me, i tried to exclude all the periods even Tianqi and Chongzhen ( with a C) This is not a Xangzhi Revival piece , so the value rise exponentialy , cant find this in transitional period, a sort of Kangzi maybe around 1720 and than is real value, ( the pointilism is good the rim is good (brown) , and the motif make some sense, and then its it,s a lot of value , try FACE BOOK group , this is far better then i thought , sorry for the disturbence

      apostata, thank-you for your continued interest.

      apostata, I joined a FB group and received this answer: It looks to be a Qianlong period ‘saucer dish’ made for the European export market.
      About 1770-80
    10. apostata apostata, 11 months ago
      see my remarks in my profile and settings from yesterday, dating 1750
      the dating is almost the same because of the Batavian brown rim mark, the keyfret and the excellent pointilism
      but we are not out of the woods yet , because they combined a rather known Kangzi theme with the Qianlong motifs, so i think i think it can,t be that late Qianlong but early Qianlong, its rather atypical, so the value has risen
      one expert on FB did very well , and the rest was just howling with the wolfs, but i agree he is the better expert , and we only got timespan difference 20-30 years

      i think you done well congrats

      addendum pointilsme are the dots in the shrubs

      rule of thumb, purple color and pointilisme is mostly always quianlong or jiaging
    12. blackpin123, 11 months ago
      I had just finished googling pointilism to see what it referred to - thank you again for your help.
