Bowl with raised ribs
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. The base has a six-character underglaze blue reign mark of the Chenghua period but it dates to the Kangxi era. Elphinstone purchased this bowl in 1924.
