Description

Dish. Hard-paste porcelain painted in famille verte enamels, green, iron-red, yellow, black and grey. The dish has deep sides, with slightly everted rim, resting on a shallow foot. It is decorated all-over with a scene depicting four ladies in a pavilion, one holding a teabowl and saucer, and one beside a table holding a ewer. A crane stands by rocks and shrubs in the foreground, and waves leap behind the ladies. The underside is decorated with a peony, a camellia and a lotus spray.
