Gift of Stanley Herzman, in memory of Adele Herzman, 1991
Not on view
Named after a prefecture in Hebei Province in north China, Ding wares were made from the eighth to the thirteenth or fourteenth century, and were popular at the Northern Song (960–1127) court. The shape of this base, which most likely derives from a silver piece, is extraordinarily difficult to make because the neck is so long and slender.
