15th C. Chinese Ming Blue on White Bowl w/ Xuande Mark:

East Asia, China, Ming Dynasty, ca. 15th century CE. A beautiful blue on white porcelain dish with floral motifs around the interior and exterior. The vessel rests on a ring base with a shallow basin surrounded by gently flared walls. The interior basin tondo features a bouquet of lotus flowers tied by a ribbon and surrounded by a flower and tendril pattern below a stylized border of vines just under the lip. The exterior of the dish features a Lingzhi and tendril pattern with the Xuande six-character mark. Under Emperor Xuande, who ruled 1425 to 1435 CE, China saw some of the most sophisticated production of blue and white porcelain, and this piece is no exception! The bowl is in superb condition with wonderful preservation of coloration and motifs. Size: 10.75″ Diameter x 2″ H (27.3 cm x 5.1 cm)
