Dish

The dish is complete; a break has been repaired with glue. It is circular with a plain rim. On the front, the marli slopes slightly inwards, and the wall slopes towards the bottom, which is flat. On the reverse, it rests on a milled foot, whose fulcrum is unglazed; the bottom is recessed and flat. The body is beige, and the object is covered with a bluish-white enamel. There are three traces of a pernette in a triangular pattern on the reverse. The enamel is shiny. The enamel around the rim has disappeared. The decoration is hand-painted in cobalt blue, underglaze. It is of the scenic Chinese and Sgraffito type. The decoration can be found on the marli, on the wall and on the background. The decoration on the marli, near the rim, consists of a wide fillet with rounded indentations on the inside. The main decoration, near the junction with the wall, features two different motifs, repeated in alternation: a trifoliate motif on a terrace, flanked by leafy stems, and a stylized plant motif with beads. The motif on the wall is a ribbon composed of two alternately repeated motifs: a double lattice and a blue-background band decorated with Sgraffito scrolls. The background decoration is encircled by a ring; it features a Chinese lake scene composed of two islands separated by a body of water. The island in the foreground features a pagoda with a double-sloped roof, rocks, a tree and a shrub, while the island in the background has a building, rocks and shrubs. Birds flying in the sky.
