Tureen with Platter
Author: Unknown
Origin: China
Dating: c.1750-60 (Qing Dynasty, Qianlong period)
Material: Porcelain
Dimensions (cm): 19,2 x 33,7 x Ø 37,5
Inv. no.: PD0390

An octagonal tureen, in white porcelain, with lid and platter. The pieces are painted in cobalt blue with Chinese fauna and flora motifs: a deer, pine trees, bamboo, a plum tree flowering, peonies, etc. The tureen has handles shaped as rabbit’s heads and the lid’s knob as a pomegranate.

In all probability, this piece was modelled after a European silver tureen. Known documentation of this period attests that full dinner services with European motifs were commissioned, often with the purchaser’s coat of arms.
