Large Chinese Ming Dynasty Cafe au Lait Porcelain Bowl - Wanli

This very rare bowl was made during the Wanli reign (1573 - 1620) of the Ming Dynasty and is a very early example of Chinese "cafe au lait" porcelain, the inner surface and recessed base being coated with a clear glaze and the underside coated in a pale yellowish-brown glaze. Interestingly, this bowl was excavated in Cambodia.

This bowl is a good size with a diameter of 18.5 cm (7.25 inches). Unfortunately there is a chip to the rim. However, it has a good ring when tapped and is free from any restoration or repair.
