Unknown artist, expand_more

Qingbai cup stands with pierced trefoil motifs first appeared in the eleventh century. This type of thinly potted porcelain cup and stand can be seen in Song dynasty (960-1279) paintings illustrating banquet scenes. Intended for elegant dining, these vessels should be seen in the context of other Qingbai tableware such as the bowls, ewers, and saucers shown here.
