The blue and white dish has a wide-spreading flange. The centre is painted with a basket on a low square table, filled with flowers, fruits, a book scroll and insects. It is placed on the ground in front of a balustrade. The basket is decorated with a meander motif. The scene is set in an octagon in a double circle. The well and flange are painted with eight circles separated from each other by stylized floral motifs, meanders and scales. The outer rim is decorated with a small band of cartouches, trellis-work and scales. The cartouches are filled with a stylized plant motif that connects to the one between the circles. The outer edge is blue.
Dimensions: diameter 39.2 cm / 15.4 in.
A similar dish with the same decor of a flower basket in a border of circles and an outer rim is in the Posten collection (Hebben & Peters, p. 76). Another copy was in the collection of antique dealer Aronson (fig. 25).
The decoration is inspired by Chinese kraakporcelain from the first half of the seventeenth century.
