Title

Dish with 'ruyi' design

1522-1566


Artist

Jingdezhen ware

China


About

Judging by its quality, this small dish, with a delicately executed 'doucai' design of interlocking 'ruyi' lappets, was probably made early in the reign before standards declined as the Ming court was distracted by growing political and social problems. It is a direct copy of a Chenghua prototype.
