Lot Essay


Imperial porcelains in the Zhengde period were often inspired by the decoration of earlier prototypes. The pattern of this dish was introduced in the Xuande period and continued to be made throughout the sixteenth century. Compare a dish of the same size and pattern illustrated by J. Harrison-Hall in Ming Ceramics in the British Museum, London, 2001, p. 204, no. 8:23.
Other examples of slightly smaller size, some with slight variances in the positioning of the ribbon-tied lotus and grape, are in the Percival David Foundation, illustrated in Oriental Ceramics, The World's Great Collections, vol. 6, pl. 37; the British Museum, illustrated in Oriental Ceramics, The World's Great Collections, vol. 5, pl. 187; the Koger Collection, illustrated by J. Ayers in the exhibition Catalogue, p. 96, no. 72; the Fogg Art Museum, illustrated by S. Valenstein, Ming Porcelains, and another in the Matsuoka Museum of Art, included in Selected Masterpieces of Oriental Ceramics, 1984, Catalogue no. 63.
