Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Longquan Celadon Jarlet
This attractively-shaped small jar was made during the 13th - 14th century at one of the Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province. It is heavily-potted and is coated in a thick crackled celadon glaze that falls short of the foot. Unusually around the base edge is a series of incised vertical lines. The concave base remains unglazed revealing the pale grey porcelaneous body.
Diameter 6.75 cm. Good condition with no repair or restoration.
