This lovely, well potted Qingbai saucer dish with light green glaze has a central moulded decoration of two fish, swimming freely through aquatic plants. The pattern around the fish is known as Lei wen or yun lei wen (Cloud or Rolling Thunder/Cloud Pattern), it symbolized life (rain) and good wishes. Diameter: 14 cm. Condition: Good. There is some unevenness and discolouration to the rim where it would have been covered by a metal band. Price: USD $300; CAD $392 (13% HST will be applied on all sales in Ontario). Note: Pictures shown here depict the glow of the glaze in studio light, natural daylight and summer day sunlight.
