A thin, white-glazed dish was decorated on the surface with vibrant motifs of a galloping horse among flowers and weeds.
By the rice-white glaze, it was revealed with the light grayish-tinted body clay on the rim.
With characteristic shape, the tear-dropping glaze, the dated and exact design of the motifs, and the obvious incursions(which in sore's-like condition under magnify glass) happened to the glaze, the dish can be fully verified its authentication.
It was a very nice piece from northern kiln with close similarity to the famous Ding wares.
And people on the market will just call it a Ding ware.
But as we found the body clay was much rougher than the one of Ding wares, we would only judge it a Ding-typed ware from the same date.
or Jin-Ding were also named as.
It can be a rare and joyful piece for collection from the unique and delicate designs.
A bigger similar piece was from J.J. Lally's collection, as a Song/Jing Ding ware too.
Date: Northern Song Dynasty, 11th/12th century.
Condition: Minute imperfection on the rim were caused from pottering.
A CUSTOM-MADE SILK BOX IS INCLUDED.
