dark spots
by: Shelley

Peter,
Could you elaborate on the relationship between the dark spots and 18th century pieces, please?
Thanks, Shelley

Production quality was at its peak then, at Jingdezhen. So many spots would have been unlikely then...

Would need a couple more of closeup (partial) views to make sure what this is. The only closeup of the interior picture looks doubtful to me.
The tree bark is drawn in an unusually prominent manner, and the willow tree is tiny besides the pines.
The many dark spots on the back should not be there is it were 18th century.
