Chinese Song Dynasty Longquan Celadon Porcelain Dish
This porcelain dish was made during the 12th - 13th Century at the celebrated Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province. The cavetto is decorated with a carved pattern and it is coated in a celadon glaze save for the foot edge where the pale grey porcelain body is exposed. The dish is a little warped with part of a kiln spacer, or possibly the edge of another dish, fused into the glaze within the base; in our opinion, all adding to the appeal of this dish.
Diameter 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). It is in good condition with minor surface wear to the glaze, no repair or restoration and a good high-pitched ring when tapped.
For information: similar examples are shown on page 171 of the Southeast Asian Ceramics Society book "Chinese Celadons And Other Related Wares in Southeast Asia", a must-have book for collectors of celadon wares.
