This dish is an example of the usually plain lacquered wares produced in China during the sophisticated Song dynasty (960-1279). Lacquer is a waterproof varnish made from the sap of the tree Rhus vernicifera. The Chinese began to use it to provide a protective coating for wooden and bamboo bowls at least 3000 years ago. Lacquer workers quickly realised the decorative potential of the material and sometimes painted patterns on the lacquered surface.
