It was considered quite fashionable in Paris at the time to display 'clobbered' Chinese blue & white porcelain like this.We know that the over-glaze decoration was not done during the Kangxi period at the time of its manufacture because those raised paste, opaque enamels such as the magenta in the small buds in the branches of the blue mudan flowers was a palette that was not available to the Chinese at the time.The artemisia leaf in the double ring on the base is a typical Kangxi style mark of the imperial kilns at Jingdezhen. During emperor Kangxi's reign there was considerable unrest and the using of official Imperial seal marks was forbidden or highly restricted. Alternatively, it may just have been that the porcelain decorators simply did not want (or were too scared) to declare an allegiance by using the Imperial seal. Whatever the reason, the result was the use of all sorts of odd little plants like this leaf & lingzhi fungus and 'precious objects' and creatures such as frogs and rabbits. And often just an empty blue ring. PS : THE 5TH PHOTO SHOW HOW IT WAS BEFORE OF PARIS HAND MADE DÉCORATION OVER THE ORIGINAL DRAWING . COME WITH EXPERT DESCRIPTION .
