Note: The egg-yellow, green and aubergine-coloured splashes that decorate this dish are a homage to earlier sancai (‘three-colour’) wares of the Tang Dynasty (617-908 A.D), where they arguably reached their zenith. During the rule of the Kangxi emperor (r.1661-1722) there was much innovation in the fields of ceramic production and decoration, with new porcelain works created that paid homage to the illustrious dynasties of China’s past.

c.f. A comparable dish of the same size was offered at Bonhams Knightsbridge, 8th September 2010, lot 129. A larger dish was offered at Christie's South Kensington, 4th March 2007, lot 261.
