WUZHOU YAO PLATE, NORTH'N SONG DYN., 906-1127AD
Rare and seldom seen! Wuzhou yao carved plate. We conservatively date this plate as from Late Tang to Northern Song, ca.: approx. 800-1127AD.

The Wuzhou kilns are located in China's Jiangxi province and have an extremely long history of production from Neolithic times through to the Yuan dynasty. The kilns primarily produced wares with brown iron oxide glazes.

This wonderful plate is well potted. The deep dish has a medium tall, unglazed foot rim. The inner foot as with the rest of the plate was glazed in . Both surfaces were carved with geometric circular patterns, palm leaves, clouds and fruit. The color is rich brown, white and buff beige. The design was etched on to the surfaces in shallow scores. The slip and glaze application was done in a special process. The body was first 'painted' with a white and brown slip. Some of the details were carved/ etched after the white slip was applied. Other areas were detailed after the second layer, the brown slip was applied over the white. Some areas were painted only in one layer. Lastly, a clear glaze is applied and the piece is fired.

This clearly shows the high-level maturity of this period Wuzhou yao.

Dimensions: approx. 24.5cm diameter, 3.5cm tall
Condition Consensus: Very Good Condition. No injury and/or repair.
