A Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Bowl. 16/17th.cent.
Diam. 4 ins. (10.2 cms) This attractive bowl with a design of a bird on a prunus branch was made during the late Wanli Period (1573-1620).
The condition is very good with no damage and no repairs. The small chip inside the foot rim is a feature of much porcelain of this period and is thought to be caused by the handling of the bowl when it is dipped in glaze. Being raw-glazed with no preliminary biscuit firing the vessel would be very fragile before firing. The mark cannot be read.
