Chinese late Ming dish with bird and pine tree


Code: 240716

A nice example of a Chinese late Ming dish made for the Japanese market (ko-sometsuke ware).  The dish is decorated with underglaze blue of an inky tone with a scene of a bird in the branches of a tree, looking across at a pine tree.  The reverse is undecorated.  There is kiln grit adhering in the glaze around the foot.  Diameter 15cm (6")

Dating: Tianqi (1620-27)

Condition.  This dish is in good condition, with glaze fritting around the rim, as is frequently found on these ko-sometsuke wares.
