A rare Wanli/Tianqi period dish (early 17th century) for the Japanese Market in mat persimmon glaze decorated in white slip with a blossoming prunus branch with a bird under the full moon.
The white high quality body is in sharp contrast with the mat and speckled brown persimmon (iron) glaze. A predecessor of the Batavia brown decoration which became popular in the early 18th century.
Please see for a similar decorated dish in cobalt blue: Trade Taste and Transformation, Jingdezhen Porcelain for Japan (Julia B. Curtis, 2006) page 76, plate 51.
