A RARE LARGE JAPANESE BLUE AND WHITE ARITA PORCELAIN 'VOC LEVE PATRIA' CHARGER

 

Arita, 19th century

Porcelain with decoration in the centre of a scene with Dutchmen, in the rim two frames with the VOC monogram and two frames with the letters L.P., possibly standing for “Leve Patria” (long live the Fatherland), at the reverse, imitating Chinese Ming Dynasty Chenghua marks, “Great Ming Chenghua period make”.


Diam. 43.7 cm

Note:

Eighteenth-century style depictions of Dutchmen are a common and popular decoration on 19th century Arita porcelain, catering mainly for a Japanese demand for exotic, cartoon-like illustrations of foreigners.
