Scope and content

The object is a glazed piece of porcelai n, hand turned with an all over grey toned underglaze. Multi-coloured enamel br eushwork applied over the glaze decorate s the face of the dish. The brushwork d epicts the "Four Seasons" Pattern. An o ver glaze potter's mark appears on the u nderside of the piece in red brush. The mark looks to be in seal characters, ho wever the mark is quite blurred and partially worn which makes translation diffi cult. A fragment loss is in the outer rim. Th ere are at least 4 to 7 very minor hairline fractures extending down from the outer rim. PH1 2006, PH2 2007
