Both of these dishes were decorated using stamped patterns: a patterned mold was pressed against the surface of the dish, and white slip was then painted over the textured surface. In the case of the greener dish, most of the slip was rubbed away before glazing, leaving white only in the indentations. In the whiter dish, the impressed pattern is only barely visible under the loosely applied slip.
The greener dish is typical of the more elite wares made for donation to the royal court, and indeed it bears the mark of a government office at the center. The whiter dish is more typical of later tastes, when the painterly quality of the brushed-on slip was considered desirable.
