Kosometsuke Antique Chinese 17c Ming Dynasty Dish Porcelain Egret Lotus


Description A very nice blue and white Dish. Chenghua marked but of later period. Box included. One egret, which can be referred to in Chinese as ‘一鹭 yi lu’, makes a pun (i.e. a homophone) on the phrase ‘一路 yi lu’, for ‘all the way’. The lotus pod ‘莲窠 lian ke’, is a pun on ‘连科 lian ke’, which means ‘to pass examinations successively’. Thus, the combination of an egret and lotus pods can be created to represent the auspicious saying ‘May you come out first in the three-level civil-service examinations’! with many thanks too; https://tutuhaoyi.com/ > great source for meanings on chinese porcelain. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- We start an auction every week on thursday, ending the next sunday.
