Exceptionally rare (only one I've ever seen) Ming "net pattern" bowl from the Dehua Kiln, Fujian. The cavetto is unglazed with an incised, crosshatched surface used for the grinding of tea. There is one small, firing crack, shown in last enlargement- this occurred during production. Please note that glaze fused together at the top of split, this goes through to the other side. Simple, fitted stand included. D: 13.2cm/5.2in and H: 6cm/2.4in.
