Information
A superb plate from the rare 'Quadrupeds' series of fifteen main animal studies, with several others making up the border. Printed in medium blue it has a central medallion of a deer in a mountainous landscape. Four scrolled cartouches in the very wide border show a lion with prey, a buffalo and an ox fighting, a tiger being hunted with bow and arrow, and a horse startled by a wild boar. Each scene is separated by lovely stylised vase and flower motifs. In excellent condition; no chips, cracks or restoration and little sign of wear. Only point to mention is a couple of areas around the rim edge where the glaze has rubbed or missed and these could have been there since manufacture. Nothing serious and nothing to detract from the display value of this stunning item. Printed 'Quadrupeds' in a scroll below the initials 'D & S'. Diameter 25.75cm (10.2in)
