The centre shows the Immortal Damo crossing the river on a stalk of a reed. The scene is surrounded by a band of geometric design with stylized Ruyi heads. the rim is painted with shaped panels of flowers associated with the Emperor and auspicious emblems.
many Kraak dishes of this size are warped and have a [poor colour but this is flat and with no visible warping being excellently potted. A good strong vibrant cobalt has been used to paint with and it has been fired in a good kiln as the colour is even and strong. Made at Jingdezhen c1610
