  • We offer this superb and unusual antique Chinese Ming Kraak dish decorated with a figural scene with radiating floral and figural panels dating from around 1640. The large rounded porcelain dish has a raised rim and stands on an unglazed foot with a slightly recessed base. The centre of the plate is decorated in underglaze blue with a scene of an extravagantly dressed lady being watched by a man hiding behind a wall, a bird perched on his hat. The scene is contained within a decorative border and the dish has radiating panels around the rim, four painted with figures bearing various tools of trade with further panels painted with tall floral stems. The dish is decorated with further decorative panels to the underside of the rim and is not marked.
