Dish with green glaze
Green derived from copper was used as a single colour glaze from the Xuande period (AD 1425–35), applied over a transparent high-fired glaze. Here the glaze is applied directly on-the-biscuit fired porcelain. The base has a six-character underglaze blue reign mark of the Kangxi period under a layer of clear glaze.
