Lovely color of this painted richly figurative plate, so-called Mandarin porcelain, with court scene, in the center an aristocrat with servants, some holding big fans, in front scholars and other persons, some are beggars. A figure in martial pose and armor. Compact composition on the flag over golden background with finest painted blossoms and fruits, among them are peony, lotus, pomegranate, lingzhi, chrysanthemums, in between birds and colorful butterflies. Some colors are particularly striking in this fine composition.
