An 18th Century Chantilly Porcelain Dish in the Kakiemon Style


An 18th Century Kakiemon Style Chantilly Porcelain Dish c.1735. This circular lead-glazed soft-paste porcelain dish is painted in enamels imatating those used on Japanese Kakiemon porcelain. The scene is a fantasy based on Japanese Kakiemon designs of the late 17th to mid-18th century. Three playful Chinese boys are show with two confronting exotic birds, a small bird in flight and a basket. The Chantilly porcelain factory was started by Louis Henri de Bourbon, Prince de Condé. He was a great collector of oriental ceramics with a particular love of Japanese kakiemon porcelain. A patent was granted to the factory in 1735 by Louis XV, it specifically describes the right to make porcelain façon de Japon, “in imitation of the porcelain of Japan;”. This is a reference to ten years’ successful experiment on the part of Ciquaire Cirou c.1700-1751.






In excellent condition. Very minor rubbing to the enamels.
