shipwreck?
by: Sal Kahil

I was hoping they were shipwreck.
In the pictures, the porcelain and colours look light and bright. but they are not. the rims are very rough and it seems like something was growing on them.

"When In doubt, ask Peter for help"
Sal saying

many thanks you Peter and your team

offerings bowls

Sal, these were for the same purpose as the other one. Painting is of better quality. Late Qing period, probably about Tongzhi reign.

I doubt that these are shipwreck items. They often look the way that yours look due to long use. They were not made for export, I assume. I'm surprised that you do not know this type of ware yet, they are quite common.
You can recognize plates and bowls made specifically for altar offerings by their wide foot, which is higher than that of other plates or bowls.
