Scallop Band 14

Scallop Band 14


Scallop Band 14 is a combination of Scallop Band 01 and Scallop Band 03: it is characterized by a continuous band of elongated half-circles with straight lines extending in the middle of them, enclosed between two plain bands. Directly outside the enclosed band and underneath each rounded portion of the half-circle, sit two separate dots painted one on top of the other (in a vertical formation). This band is most often seen on overglazed Chinese porcelain.

Note: Very similar to Scallop Band 02
