Chinese Song Dynasty Incised Qingbai / Celadon Porcelain Bowl

This bowl was made in the 12th Century during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), a product of one of the kilns in Fujian province, probably the Tongan or Anqi kilns. It is fairly "heavily-potted" and coated in an olive-green qingbai type of glaze that has a hint of blue in places, save for the foot that remains unglazed showing the pale porcelaneous body. The inner surface is decorated with incised floral patterns. Clearly the rim is supposed to be decorated with notches, although this appears to have been done rather haphazardly and what initially appears to be a chip is glazed so was clearly done prior to glazing and firing.

Diameter 17 cm (6.75 inches). Very good condition with no restoration or repair.

For information: this bowl is one of three very similar bowls (stock numbers MB601, MB602 & MB603) we are offering for sale, clearly of the same period and from the same kiln, but with a variance in the colour of the glaze. The fine 1983 Southeast Asian Ceramic Society book "Song Ceramics" describes and illustrates very similar bowls.
