|The age-old love story of two lovers are depicted on these lovely 7.5" bone china plates. The pattern on the white dessert plate fills the interior of the plate and spills out onto some of the border. |
This time honored pattern from the eighteenth century tells a wonderful love story.
Originating in the eighteenth century, it tells the love story of Koong tse, a rich man's daughter, and Chang, a clerk. Koong tse's father forbids the marriage of Koongt tse and Chang, and betroths her to a rich mandarin. The lovers flee to an island, where they live happily. When Chang becomes a published writer, the mandarin finds the couple and Chang is killed. In despair, Koong tse commits suicide. The souls of the lovers are depicted as two immortal doves.
