Plate with Grapes and Floral Sprays


Porcelain with underglaze blue decoration

Anonymous Gift 1953.127


This large platter with grape and floral decoration, which is different from the small stem cups decorated with dragons nearby, was made primarily for export to southeastern and western Asia. However, a similar example bearing the Xuande reign mark has also been excavated from the Ming imperial kilns at Jingdezhen.
