D1410. Blue and White ‘Kraak’ Plate
Delft, circa 1730
Painted in the center with a diaper-patterned jardinière-on-stand filled with a peony, a scroll and other objects in a fenced garden within an octafoil medallion reserved on a scalework ground and surrounded on the cavetto and rim with eight floral panels alternating with narrower panels of circlets and dots between hatching and further scalework, and the scalloped and barbed edge decorated on the underside with dashed ovals and + motifs.
Marked AR in blue, attributed to Adriaa[e]n van Rijsselberg[h], master gold painter employed at De Grieksche A (The Greek A) factory from 1701 or possibly 1713 to 1735
22.6 cm. (8.9 in.)
Various polychrome and gilded chinoiserie and related dishes with an AR mark are attributed to Adriaa[e]n van Rijsselbergh[e], who was contracted as a gold painter by De Grieksche A (The Greek A) Factory in 1713, and whose production period is thought to range from 1701 until his death in 1735, during which time he may have been working also in his own independent workshop. This gold painter, however, should not be confused with Arij van Rijsselbergh, who worked as a faience painter at the Drie Posteleyne Astonne (Three Porcelain Barrels) Factory and died in 1727.
