Why this is a
Masterpiece

The dish is of high artistic and technical quality. It almost certainly belonged to a classically educated mandarin. It is a good example of early high-class Chinese lacquer work for indigenous use.

History of the Object
Dishes in black lacquer with red painting in T’ien-ch’in, is a technique that originally came from Japan. The motif is a jumping carp at the Dragon Gate, a symbol of those who had passed the examinations to become an Imperial official. All the motifs on the dish have a symbolic meaning intended to bring luck and success. It is now shown in the exhibition China – in the middle of the World at Kulturen in Lund. Literature: Kulturens årsbok 1986, Bo Gyllensvärd
