Du Paquier Porcelain Manufactory
Austrian, 1718-1744

About this artwork

A significant number of Du Paquier porcelains are indebted to Chinese or Japanese porcelain prototypes; a Japanese Imari plate (or a Chinese interpretation of the Imari pattern) clearly served as a model for this very large dish, suggesting the presence of private collections of Asian porcelain in Vienna in the 18th century. The scale of this dish, as well as the technical mastery required to fire the underglaze blue, iron-red enamel, and gilding, attest to the ambitious goals set and achieved by the factory’s director, Claude Innocent Du Paquier.
