Porcelain plaques painted in blue and white, famille verte or famille rose were often used during the early and mid-Qing Dynasty in certain kinds of furniture construction, several panels at one time being incorporated for decorative purposes for example into large hardwood folding screens, the main splat at the back of chairs, the tops of suitably shaped tables, and serving trays. These were however normally of smaller size than the present lot. However, the quality of the present plaque suggests that it was always intended to be hung on a wall as a handsome display panel in its own right. Decorative porcelain landscape plaques that were designed from the outset to be hung on the wall as decoration are normally associated with a later date of manufacture; large-dimension porcelain plaques like this present lot, were in the 18th century, just as likely to have been created to be set into a hardwood frame as a standing table screen.
