The dish, gracefully potted with six bracket lobes resembling a blossoming flower, is extremely rare among celadons from the Yaozhou kilns in Shaanxi. Unlike the southern kilns of Longquan in Zhejiang, where floral-shaped dishes were popular in the Southern Song and Yuan dynasties, Yaozhou undecorated celadons were uncommon after the 10th century. 


A hexafoil Yaozhou dish of comparable size is published in Songdai Yaozhou yaozhi / The Yaozhou Kiln Site of the Song Period, Beijing, 1998, p. 212, fig. 110:10.


此盤巧作六瓣菱花式,曼妙可人,乃陝西耀州窰珍罕之品。耀州素紋花式器,縱然雅致,十世紀後極為僅 見,有別於南方浙江龍泉窰所出大宗,後者南宋普及、蒙元延燒,珍罕之況,不能相提並論。


如此罕見之品,有出土例可資比對;參見《宋代耀州窰址》,北京,1998年,頁212,圖110:10。
