A Rare 18th Century Chelsea Plate In The "Lady In The Pavilion" Pattern

Circular and saucer-shaped, the plate is lobed and boldly fluted at the edge and painted after a Japanese original in the Kakiemon palette; of a lady resting in a garden landscape wearing a turquoise and iron red kimono, a turquoise pavilion to her right with a walk-way, hanging pendent draperies and lanterns of red and gold, a large wicker basket with a bird at her side calling to it's companion who hovers above, beneath a strip of turquoise and blue sky

Three spur marks to base

Circa 1752-1754

24 cm diameter

Excellent condition

Some stacking wear to the red enamels

This pattern originated in 17th century Japanese porcelain wares and was copied by Chantilly and other European manufactories. The Chelsea sale catalogue of 1755 refers to the 'Lady pattern' while the 1756 catalogue includes the 'old japan lady pattern'. These could possibly have referred to old stock remaining from the Raised Anchor period. An identical Chelsea plate of this shape, pattern and colouring can be seen in the Victoria & Albert museum.
