A small pair of Ding foliate-rim dishes, Northern Song-Jin dynasty (960-1234)

Lot 3218. A small pair of Ding foliate-rim dishes, Northern Song-Jin dynasty (960-1234); 3 3/4 in. (9.6 cm.) diamEstimate HKD 100,000 - HKD 150,000Price realised HKD 187,500. © Christie’s Image Ltd 2014. 

Each is thinly potted with shallow, flared sides rising to a notched, hexagonally lobed rim. It is covered inside and out with a satiny glaze of ivory tone continuing over the flat base, with the edge of the rim unglazed, Japanese wood box.

ProvenanceHirano Kotoken, Tokyo.

Note: It was a common practice of the potters at the Ding kilns in Hebei province to fire their bowls and dishes upside down in order to prevent warping of the thin walls. This method necessitated that the rims be wiped clean of glaze to avoid adhesion to the kiln structure.

Compare the pair of Ding foliate dishes of similar shape, but of smaller size, and another single example also of slightly larger size, from the Falk Collection, sold in Christie's New York, 16 October 2001, lots 50 and 51.
