Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Dish - Rock & Chrysanthemum
This porcelain dish was made during the late 15th - 16th century. The central design in underglaze blue features a rock and chrysanthemum flowers. The rock is a symbol of durability and steadfastness; the chrysanthemum also represents steadfastness as well as friendship and a life of ease. The underside wall is quite elaborately decorated with a scrolling flora pattern. The dish is coated in quite a thick glaze that is crackled in places.
Diameter 20 cm (7.75 inches). Condition is very good with some surface wear but no repair or restoration and just a tiny chip to the rim edge.
