Chinese 17th century Kraak saucer dish made at Jingdezhen at the end of the Ming Dynasty. Made for export to Europe - Holland or Britain - carried by the Relevant east Company.

Painted to the centre with a song bird perched on rocks with a large flowering sunflower. The outside around the rim is painted in panels with symbols and peach sprays which are common on this type. But the border dividing the sides from the centre is more uncommon being a solid line and not with a pattern in it.

A good example of this type.
