Fine Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Longquan Celadon Alms Bowl
This fine and attractively-shaped bowl, the form often referred to as an alms bowl, was made during the 13th - 14th century at one of the Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province. It is heavily-potted and coated in an olive-green glaze. The foot rim is square cut with the recessed base remaining unglazed and fired to a reddish-brown but with a small surface chip, probably caused when removing from the kiln, revealing the pale grey porcelaneous body.
Diameter 13 cm (5 inches), height 7.5 cm (3 inches). This is an outstanding example of its type, in fine condition, with no repair or restoration and good high-pitched ring when tapped.
