Lot 142. A finely carved 'Longquan' celadon-glazed 'lotus' dish, Ming dynasty, 15th century. Diameter 17.5 cm. Lot Sold 50,800 USD (Estimate 30,000 - 40,000 USD). © Sotheby's

 

Provenance: Sotheby's Hong Kong, 21st May 1979, lot 29.
Spink & Son., London, July 1979.
Collection of Dr. George S. Hayer Jr. (1930-2015).
Christie's New York, 23rd March 2018, lot 923.

Note: Skillfully delineated, a single stylized lotus spray in the center of the dish is surrounded by a band of lotus blooms on the well, all beneath a band of classic floral scrolls at the rim. The exterior is also similarly decorated with a band of key-fret around the foot.
See a closely related example in the Palace Museum, Beijing, and illustrated in Tianxia Longquan: Longquan qingci yu quanqiu hua / Longquan of the World: Longquan Celadon and Globalization, vol. 2, Beijing, 2019, cat. no. 165, where Huang Weiwen attributes the dish to be produced around the reigns of the Zhengtong to Tianshun emperors, citing similarities of decoration between Longquan examples and closely related blue and white dishes excavated at the Jingdezhen sites of the period. Another closely related dish, of slightly larger size, is in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, illustrated in Bilu - Mingdai Longquan yao qingci / Green – Longquan Celadon of the Ming Dynasty, Taipei, 2009, cat. no. 45.
