Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Dish (15th Century)
This fine porcelain dish was made during the 15th century. It is quite "heavily-potted" and decorated in an elaborate floral pattern featuring chrysanthemums around a central rock. As well as being an emblem of autumn, the chrysanthemum represents steadfast friendship; the rock represents durability and steadfastness.
This dish is of a good size with a diameter of 19.5 cm (7.5 inches). It is in fine condition with a good ring when tapped and no restoration or repair.
For information: similar examples were recovered from the 15th century "Lean Shoal" shipwreck. Our example has not come from a shipwreck, but was reported to have been excavated from a site in Cambodia that had been occupied as a Chinese trading settlement for several centuries.
