Conservation Notes

The plate, which has warped slightly in the kiln, is of earthenware, covered front and back with a speckled off-white tin glaze of pinkish gray tone, with some pitting on the reverse. The painting is in blue, green, and brownish black, with golden and red luster. The reverse has a molded ridge at the edge. There are two kiln scars close together beneath the broad rim. The inner and outer edges of the rim are worn.
