Very nice hand painted over transfered outline with oriental scene of Chinese lady playing flute with a Phoenix Bird. There are calligraphy markings on right side from the Artist.
Three holes in back rim for hanging. Got the following information from a knowledgeable Ebayer. It described a traditional lady playing XIAO (a traditional instrument vertical bamboo flute) and attracted phoenix to visit her. Ceramic painter Qiu, MingLiang (googled, but can't find any of his background or report or name) imitated Zhang, DaQian's original paint and painted on ceramic in ShangRao Ceramic Factroy. The traditional process of transfer painting these plates are using "needling point red", they copy an original paint with a transparent plastic paper by needing the line and form with little needle points, then pat red low temperature ink to transfer the image on ceramic, then paint higher temperature colors and sign name and bottom stamp.After firing the low temperature red points got burned and disappeared, the image became clear clean and looks hand painted. Size: 16 1/4" wide x 1 7/8" high (41 cm x 5 cm). CONDITION: Professional restoration to a chip on rim edge 6 o'clock position. It is only noticeable when looking up close.
