A Yueyao bowl was in charming look by finely spread crackles in the glaze.
Shaped with inverted mouth rim, the bowl was sat on a disk-like Bi bottom, a characteristic for dated piece.
Padding scars were obvious at the bottom.
It was glossy of the glaze when somehow dry-some feel on the outside.
One minute dent was found on the rim. It was believed being caused during pottering.
One faint crack line was observed inside out crossing the mouth rim. It was an very old one, caused possibly in burial.
It was hard to be detected by eyes.
The bowl can be a very fine example for collection of Yueyao wares.
