Small 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 features a bird perched upon a branch of a peach tree. The underside is more simply decorated with just two thin blue bands circling the base.
The peach represents marriage and is a symbol of immortality and springtime.
Diameter 10.5 cm (4 inches). What may initially appear as chips to the rim are in fact firing faults - this dish is in good condition with no restoration or repair.
This item is part of a recently acquired old English collection comprising mostly Ming Dynasty blue & white porcelain but also including a few earlier celadons and some South-East Asian ceramics.
