Period: Kangxi Reign (1662-1722), Qing Dynasty (1644-1911)
Medium: porcelain plaque, mahogany
Dimensions: porcelain plaque diameter: 22 cm

The table screen is made of mahogany inlaid with a round ceramic plaque. The plaque is ornamented with a rim of green dots as the grassland and alternate flowers of red and yellow. In the middle is a polychrome design of pheasants and rocks. Two red pheasants, one resting on a rock while the other stands near by, have untrimmed tails in which colors alternate red and black. Next to the rocks, chrysanthemums and tree-peonies are in full blossom.
  The porcelain plaque is characterized by clay that is close textured with a surface that is satiny and lustrous. The pheasants are vividly depicted in bright colors in simple brushwork. Set off by white glaze, it is like an exquisite watercolor painting.
