Chinese dishes from South China Sea
There is a dealer here in town (Thailand) whom has a number of plates. Some of which still have barnacles attached. He says a friend has dove on a wreck in the South China Sea and retrieved these pieces. He has quite a few of different sizes and variety. They are beautiful. I will go back armed with a camera and leave a photo here. I noticed one of the pieces (smaller vase-?) has a blue swastika painted in the bottom-a very simple one. Most of the other pieces seem to have some sort of blue leaf. The china seems to be beautifully handpainted-blue colors....Does this sound like from any certain period? Thank you and pictures later.
