LONGQUAN CELADON STEM BOWL

EARLY MING DYNASTY, 14TH-15TH CENTURY

12.6 cm diameter, 11.3 cm high

The heavily potted stem bowl rises from a bamboo-shaped high waisted foot to a rounded bowl with a lipped rim. The inside and outside are covered with an unctuous celadon glaze thinning at the rim and the raised borders around the foot. The lower foot and hollow base reveal the orange-burned body.
