Grote schotel beschilderd met een qilin (platter; unknown Chinese; ca. 1350; Rijksmuseum (Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands); AK-RBK-1965-88; RM001.collect.3153)
Note: The bottom of this large dish - 45.5 cm in diameter - is painted with a fantasy animal, a qilin, amid melons, grapes and the leaves of the banana tree. The wall of the dish is decorated with lotus fronds and the border with a diamond design. The dish was made in the Southern Chinese city of Jingdezhen in the fourteenth century, and is among the earliest examples of blue-and-white porcelain. As early as the Yuan dynasty (1279-1368), Jingdezhen was an important centre of porcelain production.
