Three lovely plates with very fine painted decoration, typical Qianlong style and period.
Provenance: the couple of plates with blue edge are from the estate of the late Duchess of Roxburghe, and come from her residence at West Horsley Place, Surrey, England. The third plate has a different provenance, but is very similar in style and period.
Very finely and thinly potted out of cream colored clay, with a thick white glaze and polichrome flower painting decoration in the Famille Rose colors. The quality of the painting (overglaze enamel with gold touches) is minute and particularly fine, the best of export Chinese porcelain of the time.
The rims are finished with a cafe-au-lait enamel. The underside of the plates is glazed, without decoration.
Good condition: some firing faults, minor frittings on the rims, one plate has been restored.
