Porcelain dish with celadon glaze
Longqing (AD1567–72) ceramics are particularly rare as the emperor only reigned for six years. Stylistically they relate closely to Jiajing and Wanli imperial wares. This small dish is decorated with a celadon glaze outside and with a four character Longqing reign mark which reads 隆慶年製 inside. The base carries a further mark.
