Ming Porcelain

Underglazed blue porcelain dish, Chinese Ming Dynasty, Yongle period (1403-1424). This large dish is one of my favorite objects in the Chinese collection of the Art Institue of Chicago. With crisply fine detail and superb condition, it boggles the mind that it is more than 600 years old.
