The plate is thrown and turned, with footring (and drilled hole for hanging.) Inside the painted double line, and outlined in black, is the figure of a woman, filled-in with areas of manganese, yellow, green and red. The dish’s outside profile is slightly carinated at the rim. It shows a woman in a manganese caftan, possibly over a white robe, with a red shalwar and yellow shoes, and wearing a green and red-spotted headdress. She is flanked by two complementary floral sprigs.
