Ming Dynasty Crackle Glaze Blue and White Chinese Porcelain Bowl

Query submitted

This is a fine example of a Crackle Glaze Blue and White Porcelain Bowl produced in the Annam province of China during the Ming Dynasty. It has swirling scroll border surrounding a floral design on the interior. The exterior is decorated to look like a flower. The reddish brown base is typical of Annamese porcelain. The bowl dates to the 15th/16th century and was produced in what is present-day Vietnam. Please see Koh-Antique for a reference and comparison.

The bowl is in good condition with some glaze deterioration, as should be expected due to age. The diameter is 5.5 inches.
