NOTE :

There is no certainty as to the origin of decoration for the "Golfer & Caddy" plate.
A Chinese c1730 Yongzheng example is mentioned.
However Bernard Watney cites likely derivation as a Japanese copy of Dutch Delft,
dating a bit earlier than the 1730 Chinese example.
This pattern was at one time called the "Image" or "Bordered Image" pattern,
and was renamed by contemporary collectors, "Golfer and Caddy".
This pattern usually dates between 1755-1760.

 

Conditon : Excellent with no chips or cracks or hairlines;

the usual paintinng and glaze irregularities characteristic of the period,

with several superficial incised lines across the glaze verso (in the making);

the painting has particularly nice detailing, sometimes lost is early Bow painting
