The charger is decorated with a predominately iron-red over-glaze enamel design featuring branches with assorted flowers with two birds and three large iron-red heavily enameled free-form designs on the outside edge that are elaborately gilt decorated. The back of the charger with a wide iron-red feather type design around the exterior border and two sets of narrow red rings with one set on each side of a wider red band. The base is decorated with a red painted 6-character mark.The ceramic body shows signs of hand forming by the maker on the front and the back side of the charger has a grainy texture. We believe this is an older piece possibly from the late 18th-early 19th Century, however, we are not experts on Asian antiques so please use your own judgment regarding age of this piece. Measures 3" high and 15" in diameter.
This nice charger is in very good Estate condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. There are some areas with faint discoloration on the interior of the plate and on the non decorated band around the exterior and wear to the gilded outer rim. The exterior has a faint grainy texture from production as made. Have been in the Antiques business for over 30 years and try to describe our items as accurately as possible.
