TWO CHANTILLY FLUTED NAVETTE-SHAPED DISHES

Circa 1735
Both with hunting horn marks in iron red
13.0 and 13.3 cm across

 

The brilliant strong colours set against the milky white tin glaze is characteristic of the early period at Chantilly around the time of the granting of the privilege by Louis XV to Ciquaire Cirou to create porcelain in the façon de Japon in 1735, under the patronage of Louis Henri de Bourbon, prince de Condé.

Decorated in Kakiemon style with chrysanthemum sprays. This apparently unrecorded form is loosely derived from Japanese prototypes. They perhaps formed part of a dessert service.
