Description

Dish, stoneware, thrown and celadon-glazed. The mouth of this shallow saucer-shaped dish is slightly incurved, the footring is wide and low. A pale crackled jade-green celadon glaze with a subtle gloss evenly covers the whole surface and adheres in a thick layer on the base, almost obliterating the footring. The base shows three quartzite spur-marks.
