Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Bowl - Buddhist / Lotus
This blue & white porcelain bowl was made during the early to mid 1500's. The central pattern would appear to be a variation of the double-vajra (Buddhist sceptre). Around the inner rim is a trellis border. The outer wall is elaborately decorated with a pattern featuring lotus blossoms. The lotus is, of course, a Buddhist emblem, and also represents purity and perfection.
Diameter 15.5 cm (6 inches). There is a tiny chip to the underside rim edge, but there is no repair or restoration and this bowl has a good ring when tapped.
