Ming 15th century Longquan conical bowl with deep foot. Excellent shape and colour. Unusual design for a bowl with incised decoration of running / grass script to the inside. the inside is divided into 6 sections by carved lines and each character is inside the section.

This form of carved decoration is more usual on saucer plates or large open plates. This makes it unusual.

The finish is a slight matt but is fine.

The foot is slightly cleared off in areas which is typical of the age. On the rim there is a small iron brown spot but it is in the glaze and isnt damage.
