Dish

The dish is almost complete; a few chips are missing from the inside rim. The dish is circular with a plain outline. It is thick and heavy. In cross-section, it is flat with a slightly raised rim; the base rests on a solid ring foot, whose fulcrum is unglazed. The body is pinkish-beige in color and covered with a bluish-white enamel; there are enamel smudges under the dish, near the rim. Three traces of linear and triangular pernettes are visible under the wall. The foot is pierced by two circular suspension holes, the inner perimeter of which is filled with enamel. There are areas of amati enamel on the inner base; the decoration is hand-painted in two-tone. It has been traced and painted in dark blue underglaze and red overglaze. It is of the compartmented braid and floral basket type. The decoration is painted on the wing near the edge and in the center of the background. The wing is decorated with a braid. The braid is outlined in blue and painted in blue and red. The braid is adorned with two alternately repeated motifs. One is in reserve on a blue-painted background: it consists of mirrored elements on either side of the center, i.e. quarter-leaves flanked by two scrolls, followed by a quarter-leaf. These leaves are adorned with red radiating lines. The other motif is a latticework drawn in red and trimmed with blue-painted pearls. These two motifs are separated by a half-flower traced in red with a blue-painted core; it is set in two blue-painted arched bands, while the sides are in reserve. The background features a flowering basket surrounded by ring-shaped leafy stems. The basket is truncated cone-shaped, with a flat swollen bottom and a flat swollen rim; it is outlined in blue and partially filled with a latticework painted red; the basket’s rendering imitates rattan. From the top of the basket emerge a central flower framed by leaves and two flowers; these are surrounded by flowers, leafy stems and grapes. Some of the flowers and their leaves are outlined in blue and partially filled in with red radiating lines or red latticework; the large central flower is painted in faded blue, as are the grapes. The stems and other leaves are outlined and painted blue. Two red tendrils emerge from each side of the basket. The basket rests on an ironwork-like support, the elements of which are arranged in a mirror-like fashion. It consists of two scrolls ending in acanthus leaves curving upwards. The scrolls are linked by a curved stem. In the center of the support is a plant motif adorned with a pearl, while the base of the curved stem is adorned with a plant motif flanked by two scrolls. These elements are traced and painted in blue, with the exception of the central motifs, which are filled with a latticework of dots traced in red. The basket is surrounded by a ring of alternating leafy stems and pearls. The stems are outlined in red, while the beads are outlined in red and painted blue.
