    More commonly found dating from the Tang period, when dishes were frequently embellished with gilt patterns and more exaggerated lobes, it is very rare to see a silver dish dating from the Song period. The present lot takes its inspiration from the simplicity of Song dynasty lobed lacquerware and Ding ware.
