Dish

The dish is complete; there is a small lack on the edge and a long crack. It is circular in shape with a plain rim. On the front, the rim is wide and slightly inclined towards the bottom, and the low wall curves towards the flat bottom. On the reverse, it rests on a milled foot, the base of which is unglazed. The bottom is flat and recessed. The wall is separated from the marli by a bearing. There are three pernette marks in a triangular pattern. The enamel is shiny and has small needle holes on the reverse of the plate. There is a mark painted in blue under the base: Vduyn. The enamel around the rim has partially disappeared ; The decoration is hand-painted in cobalt blue, underglaze. It is of an oriental scenic type, with a garden motif. The decoration is on the marli and on the background. The decoration on the border, near the edge, is a braid filled with a row of double crosses alternating with four grouped pearls. The main motif consists of three long, leafy, flowering stems arranged in a triangle. The background motif is encircled by a double ring and consists of a garden with tree and fence. It rests on an undulating terrace and consists of two fence sections with posts; one of the posts is partially obscured by a stylized rock with a hole in it, a symbol of the Chinese philosophy of Taoism. To the right is a tall tree, probably a pine. A leafy, flowering shrub stands behind the fence.
