Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Dish with Fish Pattern
This unusual porcelain dish was made during the 15th Century. It has rounded sides and is relatively “heavily-potted” with a "hole-bottom" base. It is decorated inside with a "red biscuit" fish amongst water weeds that are shown in underglaze blue. The fish is a symbol of wealth and abundance. The dish is coated in a thickglaze.
Diameter 12.5 cm. It is in good overall condition: there is minor surface wear and staining in places, and some "nibbling", or fritting, of the glaze at the rim edge, often seen on such wares of this period. There is no restoration or repair.
