This Ming Dynasty (1368–1644) dish contains a central roundel featuring two women seated in a landscape and framed by two decorative bands. The third, outer band includes eight large panels with landscapes and figures, divided by smaller sections of floral motifs. This dish echoes the style of the Safavid period (1501–1736), in particular the Persianate features of the women.
