Balakrishna.
Tamil Nadu, India
16th century. Length: 8 cm; height: 6.2 cm.
This small image depicts Krishna as a crawling infant. He holds a butter ball (or more precisely a butter stick) in his right hand. He is naked other than for a
chest band, a waist band, necklaces (one of which appears to support an amulet box to protect him from evil) and earrings.
The tall, distinctive headdress is unique to Tamil Nadu and is of a type that forms part of the costume for the Kathakali dancers of Kerala. The headdress here
is cast with a beautiful floral design to the top.
A similar balakrishna is in the Norton Simon Museum (M.1977.30.10.S) and illustrated in Pal (2003, p. 277). References: a

Chinese famille rose equestrian figure of Wang Zhaojun, Qianlong (1736-95), the lady playing a stringed instrument whilst riding side-saddle upon a piebald horse, all upon a rectangular base, height: 21cm.

Provenance: from the collection of Lady Ottoline and Philip Morrell, and thence by descent. Lady Ottoline Violet Anne Morrell (16 June 1873 – 21 April 1938) was an English aristocrat and society hostess.
Wang Zhaojun was one of the four beauties of ancient China. The story goes that Wang Zhaojun left her hometown to enter the harem of Emperor Yuan. Feeling sad during her journey whilst travelling on horseback she began to play sorrowful tunes on a stringed instrument. A flock of geese flying above heard the music and seeing the beautiful young woman riding the horse forgot to flap their wings and fell to the ground. From then on, Zhaojun acquired the nickname "fells geese". #chineseporcelain #chineseart #asianart #asianartinlondon #famillerose #figure #wangzhaojun #porcelain #antique #antiquedealersofinstagram #antiqueporcelain #qianlong #qing #equestrian #guestandgray #graysantiques #graysmews

Japanese blue and white VOC dish, 17th century, decorated in the centre with the monogram VOC (for Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie), surrounded by two ho-o birds (phoenixes) with fruiting peach and camellia, the rim with six radiating border panels in the Kraak style enclosing floral decoration divided by narrow bands of floral scrolls, diameter: 14in., 35.6cm.
The monogram is that of the Dutch East India Company, established in 1602. Many of these dishes were commissioned for use in the Company's stations at Batavia etc., whilst others were brought back for trade in Europe.
A similar dish from the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (1976.59) is illustrated in Ayers, Impey & Mallet, 'Porcelain for Palaces: The Fashion for Japan in Europe', (1990), p. 94, pl. 32. An example can also be found in David S. Howard, 'The Choice of the Private Trader', (1994), p. 39, pl. 4.
