Longquan celadon saucer dish made probably at the end of the Yuan Dynasty but possibly into the Early Ming Dynasty. Excellent thick deep green glaze over a moulded and incised heavily potted body.

To the inside under the glaze are thick carved lines in a random pattern like a rib decoration and to the bottom an impressed lotus design.

To the outside of the dish the sides are plain. To the foot the glaze has been cleared off to leave a round circle of burnt glaze as is always expected and is a typical sign that the piece is early and from Longquan.

The glaze is very thick and there are a few very small areas were the glaze under the rim has had a bubble in it so there are a very few small holes
