Dishes in ‘Famille Rose’ Chinese porcelain


Chinese Export porcelain : the set of 3 dishes  (28 - 26 - 23cm) rassembling the 3 designs made by Cornelius PRONK, in FAMILLE ROSE.

All decorated with a different scene after drawings of Cornelius Pronk (1691-1759). This painter and porcelain designer collaborated, between 1734-1737, with the VOC ‘Verenigde Oost-indische Compagnie’ (Dutch East Indies company) to create new decoration with specific European designs on Chinese porcelain. At the start the VOC asked the Delft workshops to produce models to send to China, but, as it was complicated and too expensive, it commissioned Cornelius Pronk to make drawings

which were reproduced in China and sent back on the « Magdalena » arriving in Amsterdam in spring 1737. He mainly made three design.
The first drawing «The lady with the umbrella », or  " La dame au Parasol "  on the left, was sent to Canton and also to Deshima. It was produced in blue/white, Famille Rose and Imari in limited amount. The ‘Famille Rose’ execution was by far the rarest and most expensive. The second one « The doctor’s visit to the Emperor », in the middle, and the third one « The harbour », on the right, was only produced in blue/white and Famille Rose. The source of inspiration of Pronk remains unknown and there are only a few other designs attributed to him.  By commissioning  C. Pronk, the VOC embarked on an expensive, experimental  endeavor that resulted in the production of some of the most extraordinary porcelains specially ordered for export to the West .  This historic agreement was the first and only one recorded of its type . Never before or since have the designs of one artist had such an effect on the China  trade .

To have 3 « Famille Rose » dishes with designs of Pronk together and in perfect condition, as it is the case here, is undoubtly  extremely rare.
