A neatly potted bowl with a simple, legible décor inside and out. It has an unglazed rim. The underglaze iron black decoration of the sunburst motif is painted on a dull cream slip. The glaze has totally eroded, but bubbles appear on the exterior. Five barely visible spur marks can be seen on the centre medallion. The carved foot shows a bright brown biscuit containing whitish particles. Similar bowls were recovered from the Xuande and Singtai wrecks (Brown & Sjostrand 2003: colour plate 79). 15-16C. H: 6.2 cm, D: 14.4 cm. NUS Museum S1967-0042-001-0
