Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Dish - Qilin

This porcelain dish was made during the 16th century. It has a foliate rim and a moulded rib pattern around the outer wall. The central decoration features one of the four great mythological creatures of China, the qilin, a symbol of longevity and happiness. In addition, around both the upper and lower surfaces are scrolling geometric bands.

Diameter 16 cm (6.25 inches). This dish is in fine condition with no restoration or repair (to the underside rim edge there is a small area where the glaze did not cover that has fired reddish-brown - this is not a chip !).

For information: similar examples were found in the cargo of the late 15th century "Lena Shoal" wreck and are illustrated in the book "Lost at Sea".
