BLACK LACQUER 'NINE DRAGONS' DISH

POSSIBLY YUAN DYNASTY

crisply carved in shallow relief with a four-clawed dragon ferociously writhing amongst eight smaller dragons, all reserved on a diaper ground, the large central medallion encircled by a wide frieze of lingzhi fungus at the rim

27.8cm diameter
Note:

The dish with its 'Long Jiu Zi' (Nine Sons of the Dragon) design bears a strong similarity to a circular ink cake designed by the Ming Dynasty painter Ding Yunpeng (1547-1628), as recorded in the collection of ink designs Fangshi Mopu of 1588.
