Ming blue and white porcelain deep charger made at the kilns in Southern China. Excellent potting and free expressive painting to show a rocky grass strewn landscape with a deer and flying bird. The border is painted with a continuous scene of rocky islands with pavilions and trees with boats sailing between them.

Swatow ware is a large and diverse family of porcelain. Swatow is distinctive with a slanting foot and large amounts of kiln grit stuck to the base. The ware was mainly exported out of the former port of Shantou or Swatow in the 16th and 17th centuries. It was viewed as an unregulated trade and was thought to be illegal and was eventually shut down by the Emperor Kangxi.

This is a good example of the ware that was produced with under glaze blue decoration.
