Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Dish - Chrysanthemum

This small porcelain saucer dish was made during the 16th Century. It is quite "heavily-potted" and decorated with underglaze blue floral designs. The unusual flower blossom design in the centre we believe to be the chrysanthemum, an emblem of loyal friendship and a life of ease. The outer wall is decorated with a chrysanthemum scroll.

Diameter 13.75 cm (5.25 inches). Upon initial inspection it would be tempting to say this dish was in perfect condition and, indeed, most people would say it is. However, to the trained eye, and when held at a certain angle in bright light, two short hairlines and a small repair can be seen at the edge of the rim (see our magnified photos). Overall though, this is a nice dish.
