    Bowl with black glazed mouth rim


    Potters in the late Ming and Qing dynasties made copies of Ding wares at Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province, Zhangzhou in Fujian province and in other southern kilns. This white porcelain bowl has an iron-black rim imitating the metal bound rims of Ding wares. Inside it is decorated with two fish among weeds and waves, encircled by a peony scroll, with a classic scroll around the rim. The fish are a visual pun for abundance.

    白釉黑口斗笠碗


    自晚明至清,江西景德鎮、福建漳州及其他一些南方窯口的陶工都仿燒定窯器物。此碗口沿處施鐵黑色釉,以仿定器金屬鑲口之效果。器內飾印花雙魚、水草及波浪,以纏枝牡丹環繞,口沿飾卷草紋。魚與“餘”諧音,表富足之意。
