Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Porcelain Bowl (15th Century)

This blue & white porcelain bowl with a heavily-crackled glaze was made during the 15th century, most likely during the Hongzhi reign (1488 – 1505). The floral pattern underglaze blue decoration is fairly basic, especially to the upper surface. The glaze is quite thick, especially toward the base that remains unglazed and has fired to a pale reddish-brown.

Diameter 15 cm (6 inches). There is a chip to the underside rim edge, but there is no repair or restoration.

For information: this bowl comes from the collection of master potter Svend Bayer who bought it in the Philippines in 1973 during his travels in South-East Asia.

Similar examples were excavated from the late 15th century Lena Shoal wreck (see “Lost at Sea”, ISBN 1-902699-35-1).
