Dish with crackled celadon glaze
This shallow dish is covered inside and out with a classic thick celadon Ru ware glaze. Production of imperial-quality Ru wares ceased when the Northern Song court was forced by the invading Jin armies to flee their capital Bianjing 汴京 (modern Kaifeng 開封) in northern China and re-establish their government south of the Yangtze River 長江 in Lin’an 臨安 (today’s Hangzhou 杭州) in AD 1127.
