I found this rather heavy plate on a flea market in bad condition (very cheap, study object as so). diameter of 29.5 cm.
Do the rough foot rim, a kind of "ribbing" appearance, the bamboo leaves on the outside and the faces of the boys fit my hypothesis that it can be from the second half of the 19 th century (Tongzhi?).
At the same time, it looks as if parts of the scenery are re-painted - correct?

thanks for any comments



The plate shape itself and the underside decoration look as if they were from the Jiaqing reign. But the decoration indeed looks as if it was painted later. I cannot tell which parts are from what time from these pictures, but the adults' faces/eyes are painted indeed in typical Tongzhi style, while some of the boys' eyes look slightly different. But second half of 19th century for the painted decoration should be right.
