    Lobed stem cups such as the present lot were produced from the Song dynasty, such as the broader cup with more squat stem from the Royal Ontario Museum illustrated by S.Pierson, Qingbai Ware: Chinese Porcelain of the Song and Yuan Dynasties, London, 2002, no.45, and continued into the 14th century; another example dated to the Yuan dynasty in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, is illustrated ibid., no.46. Compare also a very similar cup in the Meiyintang Collection illustrated by R.Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, Vol.Four (I), London, 1994, no.1613, where the author notes that the applied motifs and beading may have been inspired by bodhisattva jewellery. A related cup shaped as a peach blossom and with beading also on the exterior was recovered from the Shinan wreck sunk in AD 1323: see The Shinan Wreck, 2006, Vol.III, pl.114.
