The dishes are 12.8cm. in width and are painted in underglaze blue with a Dutch riverscape, in the manner of Frederick van Frytom (1632-1702). Van Frytom was a famous decorator of Dutch Delft pottery whose European scenes were widely copied on both Chinese and Japanese porcelain from Delft originals. The dishes have a stylised Ming mark on the base; Chinese reign marks often being used on Japanese porcelain.
