Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Qingbai Porcelain Bowl
This porcelain bowl was made during the 13th / 14th Century (Song / Yuan Dynasty). It has a translucent body and is coated in a pale Qingbai type of glaze, the colour of which varies in places. Where the glaze has run it has acquired a creamy-white appearance either due to conditions in the kiln or, more likely, a result of long burial. The inner centre remains unglazed as such bowls were stacked inside each other in the kiln during firing and this prevented the glaze from fusing them together, although this method was not perfect; there is a kiln scar to the outer wall, clearly where the rim of another bowl came into contact during firing. To the unglazed base are faint traces of ancient plant/root growths. Although not at all obvious, there is a faint hairline to the rim, but there is no repair or restoration. Diameter 15 cm.
