Qing Dynasty Cizhou-type Ware White-Ground Black-Painted Dish with Calendar Pattern


A Cizhou-type ware dish made in the Shanxi region during the early Qing dynasty. This piece is one of the later examples of white-ground black-painted design and is notably larger than earlier Cizhou-type kiln plates. The large size may reflect the influence of Muslim migrants on the area at the end of the Ming and early Qing periods, as it catered to their dining habits, which involved the use of larger plates. While this type of simplified calendar pattern is often seen in blue and white, underglaze iron versions like this are scarce.

The body is slightly distorted but remains stable with no wobbling. Apart from kiln scratches, there are no noticeable defects, and it is in good condition.
