A Fine Late Ming, Reticulated, Blue And White Chinese Porcelain Tea Bowl, ~1640:
Description:A rare and fine nice quality tea bowl from the Chongzhen period, around 1640. The sides of the bowl are cut through in delicate linglong work in between roundels decorated with landscapes; these are particularly well painted and the blue is excellent. Bowls of this type were recovered in the Hatcher wreck but this piece has immaculate glaze so I doubt that it is a shipwreck piece. Typical unglazed base.9cm /3.5 inches diameter. See Sheaf and Kilburn, The Hatcher Porcelain Cargoes, plate 53 for an identical bowl.
