17th Century Porcelain MING Bowl (circa 1620) most likely from Guangyinge kiln complex, Jingdezhen, with glossy ganodema or Linzhi fungus decor which is a medicinal plant reputed as an "elixir of life" and also a symbol of logevity in ancient China. The inside of the well/bowl also depicts the fungus motif. This item was excavated legally from a shipwreck and guaranteed authentic from the MING period. Condition: very good with smooth rim and satin glaze which reflects effects of aging in the sea; no marine deposits, no stains, cracks, hairlines nor restorations. Size: 14 cm. diameter.
