    A charming Chinese saucer with petal-shaped and brown-dressed rim, decorated with famille vert enamels of overglaze blue, green, yellow and red and with black outlines, and dating from the Kangxi period. The front of the saucer is decorated with two fans surrounded by precious objects. One fan is decorated with a man in a garden, and the other with a vase of flowers. The back of the saucer is decorated under the rim with further precious objects. The foot has an underglaze blue Mark of a hare gazing at the moon. Diameter 11.7cm (4.6").
