|This is a Northern Ming celadon dish with a very faintly impressed design of a bird in the center. The top and most of the bottom are glazed in a thick celadon glaze whilst the bottom is mainly unglazed with some spill over of the glaze. The dish measures 7 5/8” diameter and is 1 ¾” deep. The celadon glaze has a crackle finish. It is in excellent condition – one tiny ½” long area on the rim where the glaze did not take. There are two very small brown dots that are firing flaws. We believe it dates to the early Ming dynasty, circa 15th – 16th century.|
