Chinese Song Dynasty Qingbai Porcelain Twin Fish Bowl

This porcelain bowl was made during the Southern Song Dynasty (AD 1127 - 1279). In its centre is a pattern featuring two fish swimming in rippled waters.

The two fish represent harmony and married happiness.

The bowl is coated in a finely-crackled pale qingbai glaze. In places the glaze has minor surface wear as should, of course, be expected. The rim remains unglazed due to the firing method of such bowls being placed in a stepped support ring in the kiln during firing.

Diameter 16 cm (6.25 inches). This bowl is in fine condition and has no repair or restoration.
