Dish

The dish is complete; some breaks have been repaired with metal studs. The dish is circular with a plain outline. In cross-section, the marli is inclined, the wall is low and curved towards the bottom, which is flat. On the reverse, it rests on an annular foot whose fulcrum is unglazed; the bottom is recessed and flat. There is a black painted mark on the glaze below the base: 8. On the reverse, there are nine pairs of holes holding the ends of as many white metal studs, the ends of which, visible on the face of the dish, have been riveted ; The decoration is hand-painted in polychrome enamels in pink, blue, green, orange, brown, black and white on glaze, with highlights of gilding, in the Famille rose style. The design is animal-like. The decoration is visible on the marli and on the background. The decoration on the marli consists of two similar pairs of birds with flowers, arranged in a cross. One pair features two birds, probably ducks, on a green-painted terrace; one is outlined in red and painted gold and brown, while the other is outlined in black and painted white and brown. They are separated by a rock outlined in black and painted beige, and bordered by leafy stems outlined in black and painted green, with flowers painted pink, orange and white. The other pair features a bird in flight, next to a blue-painted cloud; the birds are painted pink and orange. The background decoration is surrounded by a ring of red-painted double fillet, bordering a row of gilded spearheads. The background features two small grassy terraces, outlined in black on a green background. They support a stylized rock with holes, symbolizing the Chinese philosophy of Taoism, outlined in black and painted blue. Behind the rock are stems traced in black and painted green and pink, topped with leaves traced in black and painted turquoise with gold highlights. Some flowers are painted white and pink, while another is traced in red and painted gold. To the left of the rock is a red fence, its posts painted gold and panels orange, with an oval opening in the center featuring a red spearhead. On the fence stands a large wading bird, drawn in black and painted white, black and orange. Behind the fence rises a stem traced in black and painted green, and trimmed with turquoise leaves and two flowers: one is traced in orange and painted orange and gold, while the other is painted pink. A brown iron-based plaster covers the perimeter of the dish.
