Catalogue Note

Incised with a single daylily among scrolling leaves, the present box represents a superb and spirited example of its type, demonstrating the excellent carving skill of the artisan. Originating in the late Northern Song dynasty, this attractive design of a daylily became popular in the early Jin dynasty and was often found on excavated vessels from Jin dynasty cellars and tombs. Ding dishes similarly incised with the daylily motif were unearthed from the Ding kiln site in Hebei. Compare also a Song – Jin dynasty dish incised with a daylily on the interior, sold in these rooms, 5th April 2016, lot 2832.
