China, Ming Dynasty of Sung Style ?

The dates provided in the documents for this work conflict, in one case assigning it to the Ming Dynasty and in another to the Sung. It is called Fukien Ware in one place, Ting ware in another. It has a white glaze over porcelain. The warp of the shape probably occurred during the original firing. A dragon design decorates the interior surface. Katharine and John Maltwood purchased this item in London (Franck) in November, 1919. The stand is modern.

Bulb Bowl (Fa hua Bowl); Stand
Ceramic; Glaze; Wood
China, c. 1368-1644

This Ming dynasty bowl is decorated by a clear glaze and colured enamel on biscuit-fired porcelain. The flowers and leaves are outlined by raised lines of clay, which prevented the spread of the different coloured glazes. Thus, this type of work is called Ming Fa Hua, or "cloisonne" ware. It was purchased by the Maltwoods in London (Wannieck) on March 15, 1922. The stand is modern.
