Uncleaned blue-on-white Chinese porcelain dish with floral motif. 939 grams, 10" in diameter and 2" tall. Basically a bowl (1-1/2" deep) with scalloped (1" wide) rim, the center showing peony flowers with leaves and branches, similar design around that and diamond-shaped panels on the rim, a series of 13 squarish panels on the exterior under a curious rusty orange coating from being near iron, plain (unglazed) base, encrusted all over with white worms and just a couple barnacles and oysters, rather attractive as a display but surely cleanable for museum quality. Recovered from: Unidentified late-1700s/early-1800s wreck off Jolo, Sulu, southwest Mindanao (Zamboanga area, known as the Paticul site), Philippines
