A LARGE PAINTED ENAMEL DISH
The interior is decorated with a scene of five immortals standing on a promontory as they watch a crane with an arrow in its beak flying towards a jar of arrows housed in a pavilion surrounded by the froth-capped waves of the sea, within a blue archaistic bird border and flower scroll on a yellow ground in the well. There are three blue dragon scrolls on the exterior and a similar roundel on the base, all on a deep turquoise ground.
25 ¾ in. (40 cm.) diam.
