Chinese Small Song / Yuan Dynasty Dehua Porcelain Moulded Dish
This "white ware" porcelain dish was made during the 13th - 14th century at the Dehua kilns in Fujian province. It is "heavily-potted" and has a "chalky" white body. The outer wall is decorated with a repeating moulded leaf pattern. The inner and outer surface are coated in a pale qingbai-type glaze. The rim and base remain unglazed.
This type of wear was presumably made mostly for export as examples sometimes appear in collections and museums around Southeast Asia. A bowl of the same wear with a similar moulded leaf pattern is illustrated in "Chinese and South-East Asian White Ware Found in the Philippines" (1993 Oxford University Press).
Diameter 10 cm. It is in good condition with no restoration or repair.
For information: Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368).
