Description

Dish. Hard-paste porcelain painted in iron-red, dark yellow, two greens, turquoise, aubergine, blue and black enamels, and gilding with a man kneeling before a warrior, a seated general, and soldiers with swords and banners.

Dish. Hard-paste porcelain painted in iron-red, dark yellow, two greens, turquoise, aubergine, blue and black enamels, and gilding. The very shallow, rounded sides rest on a low tapered double footring and rise to a broad everted, almost flat rim. The interior is finely painted in brilliant, clear enamels with a large central figure-scene medallion showing a green-robed man kneeling before a fearsome warrior who is drawing his sword from its scabbard; numerous soldiers are looking on carrying banners and gilt spears and there is a general watching in the background seated on an iron-red throne covered with a cloth. The interior has green walls edged in yellow dotted with blue and a screen behind painted with turbulent waves. The rim has a green and aubergine cell-diaper border reserved with four iron-red floral vignettes.
