Chinese Song Dynasty Longquan "Golden Celadon" Bowl - Impressed Flower
This bowl was made during the latter part of the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), most likely at the celebrated Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province. It is "heavily-potted" and coated in quite a thick finely-crackled celadon glaze that has fired to a golden-yellow colour. Colour variations such as this can occur to celadon glazes according to the amount of iron oxide in the glaze and/or the conditions in the kiln during firing. To the centre of the bowl is an impressed flower blossom design. The heavy square-cut foot remains unglazed.
Diameter 14.25 cm. It is in fine condition and has no restoration or repair, with only minor surface wear.
