Large Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Dish - Double Phoenix Pattern

This blue & white "Swatow" porcelain dish was made during the Wanli Reign (1573 - 1620) of the Ming Dynasty. The underglaze blue pattern features the "double phoenix" pattern, two phoenixes standing facing each other, presumably male and female, surrounded by foliage and blossoms, and coated in a crackled glaze. 

Swatow, or Zhangzhou ceramics, were often exported to the South East Asian market. A common feature of such ware is the sand / kiln grit that adheres to the glaze on the underside. 

Diameter 27 cm (10.5 inches). A very nice example; some scratches to the glaze, but in very good condition with no repair or restoration.
