A large rectangular porcelain plaque decorated with various colored enamels with a Ribbon-tailed bird and camellias growing from rock work, cased in a nanmu frame and zitan stand. The plaque is inscribed on the bottom left 蔚川寫生 with artist seal, but the inscription is partially hidden by the frame and only visible when the plaque is removed from the frame.
