Chinese Blue & White Porcelain Dish Tek Sing Shipwreck 1822
This dish is from the Tek Sing shipwreck dated to c.1822, the cargo of which was sold at Nagel’s auctioneers in Germany in 2000. It is coated in a particularly thick glaze that has "crawled" from the surface in places during firing. Around the rim is painted a iron wash to prevent "fritting" of the glaze during firing. The underglaze blue pattern features flowers in a basket.
Diameter 15 cm. So many dishes from the Tek Sing shipwreck suffered damaged in the form of breaks and/or chips. Although this dish does have some surface wear, it is free from restoration, has no chips or cracks and has a good ring when tapped.
