16th century
Mid - late Ming dynasty
Porcelaneous stoneware with Longquan celadon glaze
D: 42 cm, h: 9 cm
From a northern California private collection of Longquan celadons

At 42 cm in diameter, this large Longquan celadon charger carries a striking presence. Its color is very difficult to photograph, as it has a varying depth that changes from seafoam blue to pea green. In terms of glaze color and crazing, this piece evokes Song dynasty celadons. Notable are the various late Ming type dragons incised all over its body.

This piece is very radiant and moving to view in person. Its pale, crackled translucent glaze is simply beautiful.
