Dish

The dish is complete; there is some missing enamel on its face and rim, particularly at the corners, and a crack and break have been repaired with iron studs. The dish is circular with a wavy outline. In cross-section, the flange and marli slope towards the bottom; the marli lies on a lower plane than the flange. The wall is rounded and the bottom flat. The reverse side of the dish has a slightly concave center. The base of the dish is rounded. The body is pinkish-beige in color and covered with bluish-white enamel; there are burrs of enamel under the dish, near the rim. There are small holes in the enamel on the reverse. Three traces of linear and triangular pernettes are visible under the marli. There is a blue painted mark on the reverse: S. The dish has one crack and one break, repaired with five rusty iron spikes. Made from an iron rod, they are each inserted into a pair of small circular holes drilled in the back of the dish and held in place by a hard white paste. There are areas of amati enamel on the inner base, as well as small linear marks on the fulcrum. The decoration is hand-painted in blue. It was traced in dark blue, almost black, and painted in blue underglaze. The decoration is geometric and vegetal. It features a flower basket and compartmentalized braid. The decoration is painted on the inside of the dish, i.e. on the wing, on the upper part of the marli and on the bottom. The decoration on the wing and marli is tripartite, with two braids separated by a band. The decoration on the wing is made up of a row of ovals traced in black with a blue-painted core, resting on a thin fillet traced in blue. The junction between the semi-circles is adorned with a blue-painted pearl. This row is separated from the inner braid by a wide blue-painted band. The inner braid is outlined in blue and painted blue. It is trimmed with two main sections and a third, shorter section, all repeated alternately. One of the sections is composed of a repeated reserve motif, the elements of which are arranged in a mirror-like fashion. The main motif, in reserve, is a central half-flower set between two wing-shaped quarter-flowers, themselves set between two scrolls. The half-flower is partially painted pale blue, while the others are adorned with blue radiating lines. The other main section consists of a fish-scale section, made up of three rows of half-ovals outlined in blue, with an off-center core painted in blue. Between these two main sections is a third, consisting of a blue-painted half-flower. It is bordered by two blue-painted arched bands, while the sides are in reserve. The central motif, at the center of the dish, consists of a wicker basket filled with flowers. The basket rests on a low base that appears to be made of fawn feet, and rests on a small terrace. Made with a straight horizontal line, the terrace is drawn in dark blue, almost black, and painted blue; the base is drawn in dark blue and painted pale blue. The basket has a truncated cone-shaped profile with walls that flare out at the top; its bottom and top edge are flat and bulging, and the rim is doubled. It is made of vertically curved plant stems outlined in dark blue, almost black, and trimmed with thin horizontal lines outlined in the same way and painted pale blue. It’s filled with a few large flowers, leafy stems and bunches of grapes with hanging tendrils. These flowers, leaves and grapes are outlined in dark blue and painted in blue. The flowers painted in the central vertical axis of the basket, which are superimposed, act as a dividing line between the two areas on either side of this axis: the flowers, leaves and grapes in them are arranged in mirror effect on either side of this axis. The central flower is seen from three-quarters up, while the adjacent flowers are seen from the front.
