Sharing with you this unusual Dutch Decorated Kakiemon Style deep dish. The dish itself is a white porcelain plate from the Kangxi period, ca 1700-1720. The painting is Dutch Enamelling from ca 1710-1725. Visisble is a scene in what seems to be a garden of a pagode house depicting a Lady with a Man listening to a Nightingales singing, with a Bird Cage nearby. It’s a well known example of the original version of a pattern which is used at the Bows and Chelsea factories in England in the 1750’s where it is know as the ‘Lady’ and ‘Old lady pattern’ and which was also copied on oriental porcelain in Holland around 1720.
The piece is unmarked.

ISBN 0-903421-24-0) page 155, plate 127, for a Chelsea example of this Kakiemon pattern see 328 and for the Bow porcelain version see 327. Helen Espir illustrates the Burghley example mentioned above two illustrated it`s connection with two Dutch decorated blanc de chine beakers and a Japanese saucer decorated with an element from the present piece. The design just uses the bird on top of the birdcage. See : European Decoration on Oriental Porcelain, 1700 -1830 (Helen Espir, Jorge Welsh Books, 2005) page 84, plates 15 and 16.
