Chinese Ming Dynasty Blue & White Buddhist Porcelain Bowl (Wheels of Law)

This porcelain bowl was made during the Wanli reign (1573 - 1620) of the Ming Dynasty. It is of the type known as "Swatow" or "Zhangzhou" ware, made in Fujian province, often for export around South-east Asia. The underglaze blue decoration comprises semi-circles and the auspicious Buddhist Wheel of Law. It is coated in a thick crackled glaze, save for the foot that has fired to a pale pinkish brown. Diameter 14.5 cm (5.5 inches). It is a nice example of its type in fine condition with no restoration or repair.

For reference: similar examples are shown in the book "Zhangzhou Ware Found in the Philippine" by Rita C. Tan (ISBN 978-971-93896-0-6).
