bowls (deep plates)

Hi Stan,
The webmaster of (a site recommended for studying) has put my nose on the right track regarding your item.
The items may be shipwreck porcelain, possibly from the Hoi An wreck, which contained Vietnamese porcelain that was contemporaty with the Chinese Ming dynasty. Actually, Annam (today's northern Vietnam) was the name used by the Chinese for the territory that at one time was part of the Ming empire.
Many of the Hoi An shipwreck items show elements that resemble your plates, and at the same time seem to incorporate Chinese Ming influences.
