Scope and content

A Chinese plate. The object is a glazed piece of porcelain, hand turned, with an all over green tone underglaze. Multi-coloured enamel brushwork applied over the glaze decorated the exteerior sides of the cup. The brushwork depicts the "Four Seasons"pattern. A potter's mark appears on the underside of the plate in red brush. The mark is worn in the middle but looks to be a "hall" mark as opposed to a "date" mark. An edched symbol appears inthe fact of the plate, but it is not transcribably as any Chinese character. PH1 2006 Ph2 2007
