Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Bowl - Sanskrit
This blue and white porcelain bowl with flared rim was made during the late 15th - early 16th century. It is quite "heavily-potted" and coated in a thick finely-crackled glaze apart from the recessed base that remains unglazed. The outer wall is decorated in underglaze blue with a honeycomb pattern. The central decoration is based upon the double-vajra (Buddhist sceptre) pattern. Around the inner rim are repeated Sanskrit characters. There is a small firing fault at the rim.
Diameter 15 cm (6 inches). This bowl is in fine condition with no repair or restoration.
