Large Chinese Early 19th Century Blue & White Porcelain Dish – Diana Cargo

This large attractive dish was made at the beginning of the 19th century. The underglaze blue decoration covers the whole of the upper surface in what has been called a “starburst” pattern whereas the underside is much more modestly decorated. Inside the foot ring the convex base is unglazed. This dish was part of the “Diana Cargo”, a shipwreck dated to 1817 and sold at Christie’s, Amsterdam in 1995. The original Christie’s auction label is still attached to the base of the dish.There is a small area of discolouration, either due to uneven conditions in the kiln during manufacture, or as a result of long submersion in seawater.

Diameter of 27.5 cm (10.75 inches). Fine condition. No repair or restoration and a good ring when tapped.
