Chinese blue and white Transitional late Ming blue and white reticulated Hatcher cargo bowl.

The reticulation was also called Devils work or more correctly Linglong, a direct translation from the Chinese. The sides are cut away by hand to produce a design this one is known as the cash pattern as it represents the pattern found on the coins of the time.

The reticulation separates blue and white roundels of either a mountainous river landscape or there are two of sprays of flowers, peonies / chrysanthemums. Excellent painting.

This is one of the rarer bowls of this type as it is of the larger size. It is in very good condition and the potting is particularly fine

The Hatcher Cargo so called for the name of the salvager Michael Hatcher represents the cargo carried a Chinese junk that foundered in the China Sea. this was the first and still remains as the most important of the salvaged cargos that have been brought to the surface and auctioned off.
