Minor chips, in very good condition. No restaurations, no alterations, no touchups.

A polychrome gilt Imari Delft plate from the famous Dr. Günter Grethe collection.

Description: "Painted with an Oriental youth conversing with a lady seated by an urn in a fenced garden of Chrystantemums and Prunus beside a pavilion partially concealed by drapery and clouds"

Created between 1701-1721, marked in red with "APK" for Pieter Kocx of factory "De Grieksche A".
"De Grieksche A" is one of the best factories from Delft and had exclusive long-term contracts with the top three gold painters in all of Europe.

This plate was once part of the prestigious Dr. Günter Grethe collection and is described and pictured in "Dutch Delftware - The Dr. Günter Grethe Collection- Aronson Antiquairs d'Amsterdam in 2004" on page 86.
(I would like to invite you to compare the minuscule imperfections on the plate in order to ascertain that this is in fact the same plate.)

Only two other examples are known and illustrated in Morley-Fletcher et McIlroy "Pictorial History of European Pottery", on page 209.

Provenance: Aronson Antiquairs, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Until 2005
Notary Dr. Günther Grethe, Hamburg, Germany, Until 2004

Diameter: 21,0 cm.
Height: 2,0 cm.

Condition: Minor chips, in very good condition. No restaurations, no alterations, no touchups. 100% original. Perfect sound.

Will be shipped using extremely careful packaging with the proper materials.
Can also be picked up in Zoersel, Belgium
