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.
