明永樂 青花葡萄紋折沿菱口盤


superbly painted on the interior in rich cobalt-blue tones with three bunches of grapes borne from a gnarled vine issuing broad furled leaves detailed with veining and delicately coiling tendrils, the cavetto subtly lobed in twelve panels and depicting rose, chrysanthemum, lotus, mallow, camellia and peony, alternating with leafy lingzhi sprigs, the barbed rim encircled by band of a blackberry-lily scroll, the reverse with similar floral sprays within the bracket-lobed panels, the base unglazed

44 cm

The charger is in good condition. There is light surface wear to the rim, with small areas possibly lightly polished to conceal pinholes.


整體品相良好,惟見口沿輕微磨痕,幾處棕眼可能經打磨。
