Ca. 1700s

This stoneware dish is shaped in the form of an oval tray with straight walls, raised on four molded feet. It is glazed overall with a semi-transparent brownish-amber glaze with areas of faint purples and reds. An unglazed area in the center of the base is brush painted with six Chinese characters in iron slip glaze. Some kiln cracking is present on one end and the typical wear for an item of this age and use is evident on the feet and areas of the glaze. There are no restorations. The dish was possibly used for a miniature landscape.

Length: 11 in., Width: 8 in., Height: 3 3/8 in.
