The four flowers blossoming in the enameled medallions—peony, lotus, chrysanthemum, and prunus—represent the four seasons. This trope, also known as the 'Four Gentlemen', emerged during the Song dynasty (960-1279) and continued as a popular decorative motif through the Qing dynasty. The simultaneous efflorescence of plants that normally bloom at different times of the year symbolizes the health of the universal order and the flourishing of all things within it.
