Chinese 19th Century Blue & White Porcelain Bowl
This porcelain bowl was made during the 19th century. It is fairly "heavily-potted" and stands on a wide sturdy foot. The underglaze blue decoration has been stamped on and has fired more to black than blue. To the inner surface is a circle where the glaze has been wiped away, allowing a stack of bowls to be fired in the kiln inside each other without being fused together. Bowls of this type were found in the cargo of the Tek Sing, a shipwreck dated to around 1822.
Diameter 17 cm (6.75 inches). There is a short hairline to the rim edge but there is no repair or restoration and this bowl has a good ring when tapped.
