Large Chinese Chinoiserie Platter Charger
A large, fine tin glazed, 19th-Century Chinoiserie Platter / Charger. This lovely antique ceramic platter is hand painted with a landscape that includes a mountain, trees, a pagoda, house, and figure under a paraso. On the water are 2 boats with figures. This scene is surrounded by a floral and foliate design and a delicate border. The platter has a 19th-Century (almost 200 year old) professional staple restoration. For every metal staple, repairers of yore had to hand drill two tiny holes through ceramic, then carefully hammer the staple home. Many people enjoy collecting ceramics such as these with the old staple repairs. Good restoration such as this is desirable to many collectors as fewer and fewer of these old pieces survive. Rivets on porcelain (or metal clamp repair as it was once known) has its origins in China. Ceramic restoration was once the work of metal smiths and jewelers. It was a preferred method of repair in Europe from the 1600's.
