Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Longquan Celadon Bowl
This bowl was made during the 13th - 14th century, most likely at one of the Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province. It has a flared rim, is a little misshapen, and is coated in a thick pale celadon glaze. Although difficult to see due to the thickness of the glaze, there is an impressed flower blossom in its centre. The foot rim is square cut with the recessed base remaining unglazed revealing the pale porcelaneous body.
It is quite a wide bowl with a diameter of 18 cm (7 inches). Overall condition is good; the glaze has worn, where thin at the rim edge and at the centre, but there is no restoration or repair and it has a good ring when tapped.
