Chinese Yuan / Ming 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 is heavily-potted and coated in a thick celadon glaze. The recess of the square-cut foot remains unglazed, as does the inner centre of the bowl, showing that such bowls were stacked inside each other in the kiln during firing. Where unglazed the pale grey porcelaneous body can be seen.
Diameter 15.25 cm (6 inches). There are some firing "bubbles" to the glaze at the rim edge and a hairline to the wall that may possibly have been caused during firing or cooling as the bowl maintains a fine ring when tapped. There is no repair or restoration.
