Dish

The dish is complete; it has been broken into a few fragments and repaired with glue. It is circular in shape with an undulating rim. The rim is thin and sloping inwards, while its wall is curved towards the bottom, which is flat. On the reverse, it rests on a ring-shaped foot, whose partly flat, beveled base is wide and free of glaze. The center is recessed and flat. It shows firing cracks and traces of small radiating grooves. The foot is imprinted with fine sand; there are also traces of sand in the glaze on the face ; The decoration is molded and hand-painted in blue on the face and reverse. The molded decoration is visible on the marli face; it consists of pairs of grooves between a bulge, perpendicular to the rim and symmetrically distributed from the rim to the wall. The painted decoration is animal-like, in the Kraak style from China. The inner surface of the object is entirely decorated. There is a wavy fillet near the rim, on which an uneven band has been painted in blue. The rim and wall are decorated with compartments, divided into two alternating types. The larger compartments are trapezoidal in shape, with rounded upper corners; their outer perimeter is made of a single net, which surrounds a double net, the center of which is painted blue. Each houses a different wrapped object, similar to the emblems of the Eight Immortals or the Eight Precious Objects, or a long-stemmed flower resembling a sunflower. Between these compartments are strips of the same length, but narrower than the compartments; their edges are solid. They are separated into three zones by double horizontal arched and painted lines: their central part is trimmed with three superimposed pearls, solid or not, while the ends of the strips are adorned with superimposed rows of scales or angled solid sticks. These tongues are painted between pairs of molded grooves. The central decoration is encircled by a double ring, within which are two concentric octagons with wavy sides and pointed corners, the one on the outside being in reserve and the other solid. The space outside the octagons is painted blue and trimmed with alternating scales and sticks. The main decoration consists of a lake scene, featuring two birds seen in profile, probably ducks: one stands on rocks, while the other twirls above, and they are surrounded by leafy, flowering plants. On the reverse, the dish is lined with alternating wide and narrow compartments; they are delimited by pairs of fillets and closed at the ends by a line, one near the edge and the other, double, at the junction of the wall with the foot. The largest have a ring around an oval shape, while the others have a double cord topped by two dashes.
