Blue and White Porcelain Plate with Floral and Arabesque Design

View More Pictures

This magnificent plate is a reproduction of the blue and white porcelain plate sold at a record 3.08 million US dollars at the Christie auction house in New York in April, 1994. The plate is characterized by six bosanghwa blossoms (the imaginary Buddhist flower) in full bloom surrounded by vines and a wave band along the rim. The lavish ornamentation might lead one to compare the plate with Chinese blue and white porcelain ware, but the serene brush strokes reveal that it is a work from the tradition of Joseon (1392-1910) ceramic art.
