Hard-paste porcelain plate, painted in enamels with an Indian (?) woman, and on the rim with a broad gilded border of lyres and palmettes linked by scrolls

Hard-paste porcelain, moulded, painted in blue, green, yellow, pink, brown, and grey enamels, and gilded. Circular with a sloping rim, and shallow, slightly curved well. Decorated in the middle with an Indian (?) woman, standing three-quarters to left. She has brown hair, and wears large round earrings, three necklaces, two armbands, and a bracelet. She has a blue veil over the back of her head, a white garment with pink horizontal stripes, which leaves her right arm and part of her right torso bare, a pink and yellow striped shawl, and yellow shoes. The rim is decorated with a formal gilded border of alternating lyres and palmettes linked by scrolls with a plain gold band on the inner and outer edges.
