    Dish with crackled celadon glaze


    Southern guan (official) stonewares are characterised by a thin dark clay body and a thick, glassy, celadon glaze with tiny bubbles and a wide crackle that can appear reddish brown when the body shows through. This dish, made in Jingdezhen, copies earlier Song guan glaze. It has a black-painted rim, perhaps to suggest the dark body of the earlier guan wares.

    青釉開片盤


    薄深色胎,厚青釉,釉質潤澤且富含氣泡,釉面大開片處可見褐色胎體,這些都是南宋官窯器物的特徵。此盤由景德鎮燒造,為仿南宋官窯作品。口沿處描黑,或許是為了模仿早期官窯的深色胎體。
