The octagonal plate is potted of rather smooth porcelain with a clear glaze that pools slightly blue-green. Its overglaze ornamentation is in the famille rose palette. It has three floral branches of flowers painted around its rim. A landscape scene, including a pagoda, bridge, water, trees, and mountains, fills the central well. There is no ornamentation on the reverse of the plate. Terms of Use Credits
