Chinese Ru-type Ware Petal Form Dish
Here is an unusual Antique Ru-type Ware Petal Form Dish that was crafted in the style of Ming Ru Ware with its blue green crackle glaze and the sesame seed shaped spur marks to the base. The dish is fully glazed and with what appears to be a minor firing flaw. The finish is satiny smooth with minor imperfections.
It shows signs of age; however, the age is unknown. It is thought to be 20th century. The 5 petal form is similar to Ming originals as well as the Qianlong Guan ware reproductions. This dish is deeper with more rounded petals, displaying a more modern form.
