An especially fine pair of Chinese export porcelain Wanli period dishes with nicely molded, undecorated rims in a lotus petal pattern surrounding a central image in underglaze blue of a bird on a rock amongst flowering peony and an alarmingly large moth looming overhead. Very nicely potted, painted, and glazed with far quality and better condition than one usually finds in this early period of export with only minor rim frits filled, and minor glaze roughness to the scalloped edges, and one very small line at the rim of one sealed. Measuring 7 1/2″ in diameter. Circa 1620. $1,500.00 each.
