  • Mounted in table F311 in the nineteenth century, decorated with a green ground and painted in white reserves and in the centre of the dish, with sprays of flowers and fruit. The border reserves are edged with gilded cartouches of scrolls and trails of flowers and foliage. There are also three areas of gilded flowers on the dish; only a thick brown undercoat and traces of gilding remain, and these must have been added later.
