Foliated dish with floral scrolls


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 220

This lovely scalloped dish depicts stylized lotus scrolls set in a swirling circular rhythmic pattern. Such design is classic among early Ming imperial works, including ceramics, lacquer ware, and textiles. The surfaces of early cloisonné works like this dish often feature vivid colors (red, yellow, lapis blue, white, and green), set against a turquoise blue background.
