LARGE Vietnamese 15th Century Blue & White Dish / Charger (38 cm / 15 inches)
This large and impressive dish was made during the mid 15th century, possibly around the 1430's - 1440's. The underglaze blue decoration features a lotus blossom surrounded by various bands and scrolls of lotus leaves and flowers. The underside wall is decorated with lotus leaf panels, unusually applied diagonally. The inside of the foot rim is coated in a brown wash, typical of many Vietnamese pieces of this period. There are a couple of pieces of kiln grit embedded within the glaze to the underside and minor surface wear, as expected.
This is a large dish with a diameter of 38.25 cm (15 inches). It is in exceptional condition with no restoration or repair and is available for inspection at our gallery.
