Perfect for those who like to drink their tea from bowls, this Ming dynasty bowl is in excellent condition. There is a section on the base where there's some clay missing. I'm not sure if this was original, or happened later. It's pretty much inconsequential to the quality of the bowl though. Other than this, there are no chips or cracks.
This bowl is handmade, wood-fired and hundreds of years old, please expect some character as is normal for pieces of this age.
