What do you guys think of this one?

Its 11.5" wide. I have the opportunity to buy this for $140 and its tempting.. When was this made exactly? I know its Ming for sure, jut not exactly when.


Neither do I know...
My plates of the period do not look like this, and it hardly is Zhangzhou ware, because that one would likely have a different bottom, often not or partially covered with glaze and kiln grit. Would be a phoenix.
Try to find a similar decoration. Especially with such leave shapes, taking into consideration how they were painted.

It is too dirty to my taste, for an item that would have been not in use for centuries.
Personally I think this is either is early Ming or another fake.
