Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Bowl
This simple porcelain bowl was made during the latter part of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). The underglaze blue is limited just to a seal mark to its base. However, there is a "matt" band to the glaze around both inner and outer rim as though, and we are guessing, perhaps it was originally decorated with coloured enamels that have long since been lost, presumably due to wear and/or long burial.
Diameter 10.5 cm (4 inches). This bowl has a good ring when tapped, has no restoration or repair but does have a small rim chip and a "horizontal" longer chip to the foot ring, possibly caused during manufacture.
