This is a Chinese celadon glazed bowl with three spurs in cavetto. (Spur marks are caused by the practice of separating items to be fired in the kiln with small pyramids of clay to cause the heat to distribute evenly). The medium celadon green/tan glaze has a crackle finish. The bowl measures 6” diameter and is 2 ¼” deep. It is simply decorated with a couple of incised circles in the bottom of the bowl.The foot and base are unglazed and the base rim show signs of usage. It is in excellent condition. We date it to the late Ming to early Qing Dynasties - circa 15th-17th century.
