Dish

The dish is complete; a crack has been repaired with iron studs. The dish is oval with a wavy outline. In cross-section, the rim is bulging, the marli is sloping and concave; the wall is low and curved towards the bottom, which is flat. On the reverse, the cross-section is truncated cone-shaped with a flat base; the base is rounded all around. Three traces of linear, triangular beads are visible under the marli. The inner glaze is bluish-white and cracked. The base and support show traces of wear. On the reverse, there are three pairs of holes into which the ends of three iron studs are inserted; the decoration is molded and hand-painted in blue and very dark blue underglaze. The molded decoration can be seen on the rim, which is wavy; the marli is slightly convex where the contour is concave. The painted decoration is of the compartmented braid and floral basket type. The decoration is painted on the border and in the center of the background. The border is outlined in very dark blue. It is decorated with two alternating motifs. One is a latticework of broad blue lines. The other trellis is drawn in black and trimmed with blue-painted pearls. These two motifs are separated by a half-flower of radiating blue lines, set in two bands of very dark blue, painted blue, while the sides are in reserve. The background is decorated with a flowering basket. The basket has a truncated cone shape on a flat swollen base and a flat swollen rim; it is outlined in very dark blue and divided into vertical sections; the rendering of the basket imitates rattan. From the top of the basket emerges a central poly-lobed flower flanked by two leaves and leafy plant stems. All these elements are outlined in very dark blue and painted blue. Two tendrils hang from the sides of the basket. The basket rests on a splayed base, decorated with sloping lines in black; this base is set on a blue-painted terrace.
