Catalogue Note

The four characters inscribed might read ping shen san ji, playing a pun with the word ji (happiness) and ji (rank), which can be translated as may you advance in rank speedily and effortlessly.  The plaque also incorporates symbols of bat (fu) and bottle gourds (hulu) expressing the auspicious phrase fulu shuangquan (may you have continuous good fortune and wealth).
