Saucer dish. Hard-paste porcelain painted in a soft enamel palette of iron-red, yellow, blue, green, turquoise and aubergine with details in black. The shallow rounded sides are resting on a low tapered foot. The interior is decorated with an overall scene of two small boys looking laughingly up at a lady who is holding a small red-berried branch up to her head and is seated upon a rectangular green table beside a scroll and flower vase, on a terrace balustraded with bamboo. The base has two concentric circles in underglaze blue enclosing the mark.
