Chinese Song Dynasty Carved Longquan Celadon Bowl
This bowl was made during the 12th to 13th century, most likely at the Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province. It is quite "heavily-potted" and the outer wall has been carved in the form of lotus leaves. It is coated in a yellowish olive-green glaze, the colour approaching what is known as "golden celadon", save for the square-cut foot where the pale grey body is exposed. There are a couple of lines of crackle in the glaze (not cracks !).
Diameter 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). This bowl is in fine condition with no restoration or repair and a good ring when tapped.
