Please refer to our stock # 60 when inquiring.
This is a simple but lovely celadon bowl with a lightly crackled glaze that is almost matte. The base and bottom rim of the foot are unglazed with the natural tan of the clay showing through. It is a circular bowl but is slightly out of round and a tiny bit lopsided. This could indicate a rural pottery.

The bowl is in very good condition with one 3/16" rim chip and a slight bump in the glaze on the other side of the top rim. It measures 7 1/4" diameter at the top by 2 1/4" deep by 3 3/4" diameter at the base. We date it to the 17th to 18th century.
