Dish with flowers and inscription
Early Qing enamels, such as used on this dish, fire as thin, translucent watercolour-like colours, dominated by green, black, aubergine, red and yellow pigments. Potters painted the dish with a circular panel and ten radial panels framing flowers and plants. On the base is a six-character mark reading 慎德堂傳古製 (Shende Tang chuangu zhi ‘Made for the Hall of Prudent Virtue in ancient style’) in a double circle in underglaze blue. The dish has a double foot ring – a feature of early Kangxi porcelain dishes.
