Chinese 17th century Transitional small plate, made for the Japanese market during the reign of the Emperor Tianqi.

Excellent colour and decoration to show a toad sitting on a lily pad wit water reeds and a cricket.

Foliate edge to the plate marks it as being of good quality.

On many occasions pieces made during this period for export to Japan were made with obvious defects and this small plate is no different. There are small pieces of grit in the glaze which have been fired and could easily have been removed.

Very pretty piece
