Painted with overglaze enamels in the famille rose style, this small porcelain dish is decorated with a common motif of four flowers symbolizing the seasons. The lotus represents summer, the chrysanthemums represent autumn, the plum blossoms represent winter, and the peonies represent spring. Branching gracefully into the surrounding white field, each floral arrangement is positioned around a central peach, a symbol of longevity and marriage.
