Saucer dish (one of a pair). Hard-paste porcelain painted in iron-red, yellow, aubergine, turquoise, blue and two green enamels with details in black and gilding. It has shallow rounded sides with a slightly lipped rim resting on a very low tapered foot. It shows a maiden and a small boy in a balustraded garden, the child offering a fruit to the maiden who wears a blue robe and has paused to adjust her shoe. The rim is encircled by double line borders in iron-red; the underside with ribboned artemesia leaf, ruyi-sceptre, cash and qin emblems and a coat-of-arms in iron-red. The base has two concentric circles enclosing the mark.
