Chinese C.1600 Ming Porcelain Bowl Blue & White Bird And Peach Blossom Wanli For Sale

Relisted due to a non paying buyer..... Sorry if you placed a offer last time and did not win!
A 'provincial' Ming dynasty Chinese Wanli period - dynasty blue and white porcelain bowl dating to c.1600 +/-. Traditionally authors describe these "Minyao (folk kiln) or provincialSouthern Chinese" porcelain wares as Swatow but it's likely that a majority of them were manafactured in the southern Fujian region of China and are now called 'Minnan wares'. They were exported for use by families throughout South East Asia.
The bowl is decorated with the typical Ming Wanli bird on a branch with peach blossom and a moon. Decoration in the raised inner central medallion: peach blossom and leaves. The outside decoration is boarded with a simple blue line to the inner/outer rim and double to lower bowl and footrim. These rice bowls were intended for everyday use by millions of people throughout South East Asia and were produced in huge volumes in China and then exported in junks down the Vietnamese coast to Malaysia.
There is NO restoration on this bowl: usual glaze crazing and glaze impurities (see images to see the glaze faults and condition description). The bowl rings well when tapped.
Base is marked as in the photograph (blessing for good life similar to Fu character) and glazed.The bowl has wear associated with its age. Some scratches to the glaze especially internally; tiny minor chips on the footrim and rim (see images) and the usual thinning of the glaze and 'moth-eaten' rim with two tiny chips to glaze. No cracks or hairlines; no damage or restoration other than that described above. Points of thinning to body on manafacture show as minor defects to ligh as photographed. Glaze has lovely lustre, slightly matt and uneven with some areas quite thick below the upper rim.
Inside the bowl the glaze is quite scratched from useas usual. The rim is a little uneven [kiln warped] when placed on a flat surface as usual with some early handturned bowls.
Of slightly squat form: Diameter approx. 4.75+ inches; overall height 2.2 inches; footrim diameter 1.5 inches; inner footrim depth 0.25 inches approx.
