Made for the South East Asian market. This is a classic Ming Dynasty blue and white Swatow charger. They are very popular with collectors, especially the ones with no major damages! Recently sourced directly from Japan.
This is a must have for any collector of Chinese porcelain! Condition Report: This charger is in very good condition, especially considering its age! However, there are some/many blemishes.Numerous firing faults that have resulted in various surface hairlines, dents and loss of glaze. But these are not damages, they were there in the first place. What matters is the fact that there are no major damages. Pieces of this size and age, have normally much more serious damages, including massive cracks and repairs. It is very rare for a porcelain piece of this size to survive without some kind of damage.
That makes it very valuable and rare. You can also see the online appraisal with an indicative valuation.
The new owner will be very happy with this charger. Should you need any additional info, please do not hesitate to ask me any questions.I would be very happy to assist you.

A few things about me and my listings for art pieces.
Whether you believe it or not my interest started from Traditional Japanese razors (Kamisoris) and Natural Sharpening stones (Toishi) and quickly expanded to anything Japanese related really and absolutely fell in love it! Then expanded to Chinese art pieces as well. Hence, I have sought the expertise of a Native Japanese speaking Accredited Art Appraiser with nearly 3 decades of experience. I use his guidance alongside the description of accredited auctioneers to describe my lots and in line with similar known examples. Of course mistakes can occur and I will take full responsibility if that happens.If you are qualified to do so and you spot an alleged error in my listing, then please let me know. BUT, you have to be in a position to do so, i. You are a Certified Art Appraiser registered with an Appropriate Body or an Accredited Auctioneer in Art and have professional knowledge. If that is the case then please kindly introduce yourself to me and inform me of this error.
According to the severity of the error, I will either make changes or delist the item. If you are just another "dealer" or a self proclaimed "expert" and you know everything better. Outperform me and my Art Appraiser in every simple possible way.
Then I would like to state that your "expertise" is. Neither requested nor is welcome! I guess my "expertise" about Triden. T is not needed by the British Government...
I will be more than happy to provide evidences of it being a genuine item or of an age described. If, however, and despite this notice you message me and you try to "teach "me and prove your superior knowledge, then I would like to let you know that I have a.
