Dish

The dish is complete. It is circular in shape. In cross-section, it has a plain rim, which continues along the same axis as a slightly sloping wall towards the flat bottom. The base rests on an annular foot, whose fulcrum is convex and free of glaze. The bottom is recessed and flat. There are small black inclusions in the paste on the reverse of the dish and small glaze flaws on the front; the decoration is hand-painted in blue. It covers the inner border and base, as well as the outer wall. The decoration occupies the entire width of the marli, at some distance from the edge. The edge is free of decoration, except for a fillet that encircles the top of the braid. The braid is composed of two distinct elements. First, there’s a wide lattice of flowers with four long petals in reserve, separated by small flowers with four petals in reserve. This braid is interrupted by four rectangular medallions with lobed ends, each featuring an object surrounded by a ribbon. The central motif is encircled by a solid ring, wide and serrated on its outer edge. The decoration itself is surrounded by a thin ring. It features two large birds – probably phoenixes rather than pheasants – standing in profile. One stands in front of an Oriental-style rock with a hole in it, and they are flanked by large flowers, probably peonies, arranged in a triangle. The reverse wall is adorned with five groups of intersecting bamboo leaves.
