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 golden-green glaze. The foot rim is square cut with the recessed base remaining unglazed revealing the pale grey porcelaneous body. There is a piece of kiln grit embedded within the glaze inside the bowl, and some minor imperfections to the glaze.
Diameter 14 cm (5.5 inches), height 8.5 cm (3.33 inches). This bowl is in fine condition, with no repair or restoration and good high-pitched ring when tapped.
