KANGXI BLUE & WHITE MOULDED & SHAPED 'LANGE LIJZEN' DISH
China, c1700

 

 

 

The moulded and shaped dish painted with the traditional 'Lange Lijzen' ('Long Eliza')* to the center,
seated before a table holding a lotus flower above and beside a jardinière on a stand to the left,
within ten radiating panels of peony (and two further flower) sprays, alternating with
four Long Eliza figures standing in fenced gardens, each separated by two narrow blue lines;
the verso centering a 'Jade' mark** (as to equate the dish with the fineness of jade),
within blue line concentric circles and a single continuous foliate and floral scroll

 
* The 'Long Eliza' depiction of a slender Chinese lady with a flower
was very popular one on both Kangxi and later European porcelains.
In The Netherlands, she was named 'Lange Lijs', or 'Lange Lijzen',
which became 'Long Eliza' in English.

 

** The use of the jade mark on finer ceramics began in the Kangxi period,
and was used into the 20th century.
Its use equated the ceramic to the fineness of jade.

 

Condition : Excellent; several tiny minor glaze skips characteristic of the period;
one small glaze flake to rim verso

 

6.75" Wide x 1.5" High
