Dish in the form of an open lotus flower with yellow glaze
This dish demonstrates an attractive use of a monochrome yellow glaze at Jingdezhen. Potters fired the dish twice, first at a porcelain temperature of around 1280 to1320 °C and then in a second, lower-temperature firing to vitrify the lead-fluxed, iron-pigmented glaze. The base has a six-character underglaze blue reign mark of the Yongzheng period.
