  • Tray mounted in table F310 in the nineteenth century, decorated with underglaze blue and green ground colours, and painted in a white reserve with three birds in landscape. The blue ground is overlaid with a combination of caillouté and vermiculé gilding. The green ground, highlighted with gilding, forms a cartouche of scrolls tied with pink-ribbon bows around the reserve; green looed scrolls along the outer edges are separated by acanthus leaves in the corners.
