Unusual Majestic and Large Chinese Ming period Swatow Charger. With Matching box.

Porcelain dish with ‘Swatow-type’ blue glaze and white slip decoration. This heavily potted dish has rounded sides, a broad flat upturned rim and a tapering foot. It is decorated inside and out first with a white, then with a grey-blue glaze. Slip-painted stylized chrysanthemums fill the centre, small chrysanthemums comprised of tiny dots together with lotus sprays ornament the well, and the rim shows a border of chrysanthemum flowers. The exterior is plain. The foot ring is very gritty.
