Large Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Bowl - Birds
This unusual blue & white porcelain bowl was made during the 16th century. The outer surface remains undecorated whereas the inner surface is decorated in underglaze blue of good colour. The central pattern features two birds standing amongst foliage. Above this is a wide band comprising four floral panels between which are repeated geometric patterns. This bowl was excavated from Cambodia and the outer surface has become stained from long burial.
This bowl is of good size with a diameter of 18 cm (7 inches). It is in good condition. There is minor "fritting" to the glaze at the rim, often seen on such wares of this period. It has a good ring when tapped and has no restoration or repair.
