    Bowl


    The Chinese characters are incised in eight quatrefoil panels inside this bowl. Longquan wares with makers’ names are extremely rare and the possibility of this being made at another kiln complex within Zhejiang can not be ruled out.

    此碗內壁飾八菱花形開光,開光內分飾中文。帶製作者姓名的龍泉器物非常罕見,不能排除此器可能為浙江地區其他未被發現的窯口所燒造。
