Chinese soft pasted porcelain moulded plate painted between 1755 - 1765 probably painted by James Giles.

The plate is moulded to show a zig - zag fence, bamboo and peonies. it was produced as a blank with no painting in China and fired at a lower temperature than normal Chinese porcelain and so producing a soft paste affect, but using the normal porcelain formula. This makes the plate a creamy colour and lighter than hard paste porcelain as the body is less dense.

the painting to the body is over glaze in the European style of decoration that was beginning to appear on European early porcelain. The painting shows butterflies and insects around bouquets of European flowers.

Excellent example of the type and much collected
