Physical description

Dish painted in two grey-blues. A brown rim leads to the flange and well with its six Kraak panels busy with long bamboo tubes over emphatic S-shapes, tassels and ribbons. Commas fill the dividers. The central composition includes three flowers and leaves by a Taoist tube with two insects. To one side three leafy branches spring from a strange basket shape. Three S-stems with a plain central leaf and smaller sketchy leaves cover the outside.
