Dish, Zhang Cheng, c. 1500 - c. 1600

wood, lacquer, h 3.0cm × d 18.2cm More details

This dish is shaped like a six-petalled flower. The compact and complex decoration is built up of multiple layers of lacquer that are coloured red through the addition of iron oxide. The thickness of the lacquer consists of a great amount of layers. The saturated, deep red colour and the extremely skilful carving of this dish make it an ornate luxury product.

On display in Asian pavilion, room 2
