|This is a handsome shallow stoneware dish with a lovely dark crackled turquoise glaze. It is very much in the Ming Style - however we believe it to be Japanese in origin and dating from the late Edo to early Meiji period, circa 1850 - 1890s. The presence of the three spur marks on the inside of the dish lead us to the Edo idea as that technique was popular in Japan at that time. The dish measures 8" diameter and is 2" high. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or restorations. The bottom of the dish is unglazed and there are no potters marks or signatures on the piece.|
