Two Figures II

Pattern Category: Based on Chinese Originals

Object Type: Dinner and Dessert Wares


  • Diameter: 10 in inches

Source: Chinese Original


This early line-engraved pattern, exhibited here on an indented earthenware dinner plate printed underglaze in blue, was inspired by an original design found on Chinese porcelain wares.  There are two versions of this pattern known as Two Figures I and Two Figures II. The main difference between the two patterns is that, in Two Figures I, the figures appear to be moving from right to left and are facing each other in Two Figures II, as in this example. Chinoiserie border with picture medallions.
