In the early seventeenth century these plates were manufactured in large quantities at the Zhangzhou kilns and exported to island Southeast Asia. This one is very well potted with a deep cobalt blue design of intertwined male and female phoenixes surrounded with foliage. It has the usual grit adhering to the base. These plates are a very good bargain at the present time for anyone wanting to start or add to a Ming porcelain collection. Diameter: 26.7 cm; Height: 3.6 cm. Condition: Excellent; very good preservation of the glaze, with normal fritting base.
