Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Longquan Celadon Jarlet with Floral Pattern
This small moulded jar, or jarlet, was made during the 13th - 14th century, most likely at one of the Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province. It is "heavily-potted" and has been made in two halves, upper and lower, that have been luted together around the waist. On opposing sides of the neck are two small loop handles. It is coated in a thick pale celadon glaze that covers both inner and outer surfaces. The upper part is decorated with a raised floral pattern, whereas the lower body is decorated with a scrolling pattern. The concave base and part of the lower body remain unglazed revealing the pale grey porcelaneous body.
Diameter 7 cm. It is in good condition with minor surface wear but no repair or restoration.
This item is part of a recently acquired old English collection comprising mostly Ming Dynasty blue & white porcelain but also including a few earlier celadons and some South-East Asian ceramics.
