Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Longquan Celadon Moulded Bowl - Lotus
This attractively-shaped bowl was made during the 13th - 14th century at one of the Longquan kilns in Zhejiang province. It is heavily-potted and coated in a thick celadon glaze save for the base where the unglazed pale grey porcelaneous body is revealed. Although partially obscured by the thickness of the glaze, the decoration to the inner surface comprises eight lotus leaf panels inside which are various objects, most likely the "eight treasures", all symbols of good fortune.
Diameter 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). Condition is good: there is some surface wear and the glaze mostly has a "silky-matt" feel to it. There is no repair or restoration and the bowl has a high-pitched ring when tapped.
