A Fine and Large Celadon Bowl

龍泉窰大碗

Lonquan Kilns

Yuan / early Ming Dynasty 13th-14th century

The Longquan kilns were at the forefront of celadon ware production in China throughout the Song, Yuan and early Ming dynasties. The skill of the potters was such that they were able, on occasion, to produce pieces of a remarkable size such as this exceptional bowl covered both inside and out with a thick luxurious glaze. The foot has a typical unglazed band on which the piece was fired.
