Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Dish - Peach & Bird
This small porcelain dish was made during the mid to late 16th century (c. 1560 - 1590). The underglaze blue decoration, of good colour, features a bird perched upon a branch of a peach tree surrounded by a trellis border. The underside is more simply decorated with just two thin blue bands circling the base and rim edge and a small seal mark in the centre.
The peach represents marriage and is a symbol of immortality and springtime.
Diameter 11.75 cm (4.5 inches). It is in good condition with no repair or restoration although there is some staining to the glaze from long burial.
