Rare Chinese Yuan Dynasty Decorated Shufu Porcelain Bowl
This rare bowl was made during the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368) and is a good example of the very desirable distinctive "shufu" ware made at the Hutian kilns, close to Jingdezhen in Jiangxi province. The surface is coated with a "soft" opaque pale blue glaze. The inner surface is decorated in the form of a many-petalled flower blossom with a small circle in the centre and three circular bands of narrow petals ranging outwards from small to large. It has quite a "sturdy" square-cut foot that remains unglazed revealing the pale grey body.
Diameter 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). This bowl is in very good condition, with no restoration or repair and a good ring when tapped. However, there is a small chip to the foot edge and a very small, barely noticeable, chip at the edge of the rim. Embedded within the glaze at the foot is a small amount of kiln grit.
