Rare Chinese Ming Dynasty Enamelled Porcelain Dish
This unusual porcelain dish was made during the “Middle Ming” period (1488 – 1566). Examples with enameled decoration are much rarer than underglazed blue & white examples. This dish is relatively “heavily-potted”. It is decorated with a very rare pattern, a bearded figure standing in a garden. Around the outer wall is a scrolling chrysanthemum pattern. The patterns comprise red, green and yellow enamels. Enamels are relatively soft, especially the red, and so it is inevitable that there will be some loss.
Diameter 19 cm (7.5 inches). Notwithstanding the surface wear, this dish is in good condition with no restoration or repair and a good “ring” when tapped.
