Treat your guests like royalty with this 18th-century-inspired bowl. Since the Ming Dynasty, imperial blue and white porcelains have been prized by collectors and connoisseurs around the world. Edged in 22k gold, this underglaze blue dish is based on a Chinese export porcelain pattern, circa 1730.  9"dia.
The Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) saw an extraordinary period of innovation in ceramic manufacturing. Kilns investigated new techniques in design and shapes, showing a fondness for color and painted design, and an exploration of new forms. In addition to these decorative innovations, the late Ming period underwent a dramatic shift towards a market economy, exporting porcelain around the world on an unprecedented scale. The kilns became the main production center for large-scale porcelain exports to Europe.
