Lot Essay

Molded decoration on Ding wares was adopted in the latter part of the Northern Song dynasty (960-1127) and flourished during the Jin dynasty (1115-1234). Ding dishes of this particular design are very rare. A shard with similar molded decoration, found in the Ding kiln site in Quyang county, Hebei province, is illustrated in Selection of Ding Ware: the Palace Museum’s Collection and Archaeological Excavation, Beijing, 2012, pp. 270-271, no. 117. A molded Ding bowl with similar design in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, is illustrated by Tsai Meifen, Decorated Porcelains of Dingzhou: White Ding Wares from the collection of the National Palace Museum, Taipei, 2014, p. 150, no. II-95.
