It is a widely accepted practice to paint an individual Chinese Zodiac Sign on the ceramic, however, it is unprecedented and rare to have all the twelve Chinese Zodiac Signs on a single piece of ceramic in such a vivid and sophisticated manner. This Enameled and Gilded Twelve Chinese Zodiac Signs of Birthday Floral Decoration Plate is a typical example of such a plate. The Plate features a full, generous and dignified body, highlighting its role as an important imperial vessel. Each of the Twelve Chinese Zodiac Signs occupies its own place, enjoys itself, self-satisfied with joy with great sense of life and art.

The Plate has been painted in a Western style, with coloring, brushwork and layout all different from those of traditional Chinese painting techniques. The main part of the vessel is enameled with Twelve Chinese Zodiac Signs, which were sketched and then colored based on real objects, with all the muscles and tendons clearly delineated, the perspective accurately defined, and the direction of light and shadow well matched.  It is only the flying Chinese Dragon that cannot be depicted in real life; therefore, the images of Western Dragon and Chinese Dragon have been combined. The light gray tones of the Dragon perfectly accentuate the vitality and color of each of the other Chinese Zodiac Signs. Enameled ceramic marks the culmination of the development of the Chinese ceramic production process. The Plate is decorated with gilded patterns of the Chinese character for longevity around the rim, and the entire design is decorated in golden colors, creating a magnificent appearance.

The bottom stamp reads "Designed and Fired During the Reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty" and is embellished with the golden phoenix motif, the glaze is glossy, and the surface is white and delicate, with the decoration finely painted. The Plate was originally used to celebrate the birthday of the Queen. The enamel ceramic was first created during the Qing Dynasty, and stands out as the premier of ancient Chinese painted ceramics. It is a new variety of glazed ceramic created in the late period under the reign of Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty at the order of Emperor Kangxi, by successfully transplanting the technique of painting and enameling on metal from the European countries onto the ceramic. This item is a refined imitation of the official kiln of the late Qing Dynasty in the 1970s, and is a masterpiece worth collecting.
