From a Northern California private collection

A 19th c Guangxu imperial dish, marked with a 6-character Guangxu kaishu mark in iron red and of the period. Beautifully formed with rounded sides and an everted rim, this dish descends from a long line of "birthday' dishes in the imperial tradition featuring the theme "fushan shouhai". The combined imagery of bats flying over mountains and ocean conveys the message: "May your happiness be as deep as the Eastern Sea, and may you live to be as old as the Southern Mountains".
