Chinese 19th Century Blue & White Porcelain Dish
This porcelain dish was made during the 19th century most likely at the Dehua kilns in Fujian province and probably specifically for export. It is fairly "heavily-potted" with quite a simplistic floral pattern in underglaze blue, the colour of which varies in places. Note the Chinese characters to the underside. Dishes of this type were found in the cargo of the Tek Sing, a shipwreck dated to around 1822.
Diameter 18 cm (7 inches). A chip to the rim and a couple of hairlines to the wall; no repair or restoration.
