Technical Summary

Earthenware, covered on the front and part of the edge with a white tin glaze, on the reverse with a greenish glaze. Concentric turning marks are visible on the underside. The painting is in blue with a brilliantly iridescent golden luster. In the foot ring two holes for suspension, placed so that the dish hangs askew from them, have been made after the dish was fired and glazed; a third, placed centrally, has been drilled subsequently. There is a hole in the glaze (a firing flaw) on the child's left leg. A piece has been broken from the rim at seven o'clock and repaired with some overpaint. There are small patches of overpaint on the central scene, on the edge at one o'clock, and on the inner edge of the rim, and extensive overpaint on the reverse.
