Lot Essay

Carved lacquer dishes decorated with a single sprig from the Yuan dynasty are relatively rare. One close comparison is a circular red lacquer dish carved with a single sprig bearing peaches and flowers, also against a floret-diaper ground, and exhibited in The Nezu Institute of Fine Arts exhibition, Tokyo, 2004, The Colors and Forms of Song and Yuan China, Catalogue, no. 96.
