Chinese Blue & White Footed Porcelain Bowl marked "Da Ming"
Chinese Blue & White Footed Porcelain Bowl marked "Da Ming Zhengde". It has a wavy rim and painted under the glaze both inside and out. The designs are in panels. There is bird on the inside bottom of the bowl. I was told that this piece is early 20th Century however I can not say for certain. Could be older or could be newer. In any event it is a lovely Chinese porcelain bowl. It is 3.5" tall x 5.25" across the top the foot ring is 2.5" across. It heavy for it's size, weighs 14.9 oz.
The condition is excellent. There is some pitting here and there which is a good indicator of age.
