Mark - China Ming Plate - unique star constellation symbology
China Ming Plate - unique star constellation symbology:- The plate in question i have had for a few years i bought it in Indonesia i have had several antique dealers look at it but they will not give me a true answer on its value or translation
the plate has a three pronged mark appearing three times - this mark is for kiln firing
the script on the back is in normal caricatures appears to be 9 character so far i can only explain parts
prince or little king
birth 0r birthday Or new beginning
on the face of the plate above and to the right of the women's head is a star constellation leo or leo's sickle a crescent moon in the centre of sickle it also has 4 stars to the right and a single star to the left of sickle this to me is signifies a meaning or event or space in time
it is an exceptional polychrome plate multi colored extreme very fine cracking on base creme glazing over glazing is very good also with a clear over glaze diameter is 238 millimetre and its weight is 515 grams.
