Dish. Hard-paste porcelain painted in a wide range of enamel colours, yellow, two greens, black, pink, turquoise and white, and gilding. The dish has shallow rounded sides and a broad, flat everted rim. The centre is painted with a female Immortal, most probably the goddess Xi Wangmu, who is standing holding a spring of lingzhi fungus, with a stag to her right holding a spray of peach in its mouth and a small boy to her left carrying a large peach in a basket which is hung from a staff over his shoulder. There is a flowering prunus tree in the background growing beside bamboo rising from behind ornamental rockwork. The gilt-edged rim has six flowering sprays including peony, magnolia nad hibiscus.
