CATALOGUE NOTES

A large famille noir marriage dish. Of saucer form with slightly flaring edge, supported on a short footrim with grooved interior ring and recessed base. Decorated in underglaze blue, famille verte, and famille noire enamels. Painted in the center with a lotus blossom form panel containing a lyrical scene of two cranes perched on a riverbank beneath an arching pine tree and a russet sunset, the panel enclosed by a dense lotus scroll with curling tendrils reserved on a rich black ground, the rim decorated with a thin band of four small, oblong butterfly panels surrounded by a green and red cash diaper. The base painted in the center in underglaze blue with an artemesia leaf within a double blue line circle.
