Up for sale is an Extremely Rare 12th Century Chinese Song Dynasty Longquan Celadon Glazed Twin Fish Dish. The Dish is a truly beautiful and Authentic period example. As advanced collector will see this dish is an extremely rare find. You can find a good number of period examples with this twin fish designs in the 5-9 inch size range that come up for sale at the higher end sales. Some recently have been bringing in the 10s of thousands, with one very recently that came up at Christies Hong Kong on May 2012, sale 2915, lot 4234, which sold for 64,720USD.
However the examples you will find which more commonly come up all have the green glaze over the fish, unlike this example which has unglazed twin fish. If you look at other period pieces with unglazed features like this they usually bring a major premium in comparison to most commonly seen glazed examples. This leads me to believe this dish could be a highly desirable and value example.
Not only that but one other aspect that the top collectors look for is the glaze and how nicely it is placed, and most importantly the lightness of the celadon color itself. In my opinion on this piece you could not ask for a better laid glaze which has Absolutely no flaws or imperfections throughout, and is also a perfectly consistent very light celadon color throughout. As you can see there are some original losses to the foot rim which is commonly seen on such pieces when they were broken out of the kiln. Overall the dish is in very fine untouched original condition with no other chips, cracks, or repairs, about as fine of condition as one could ever hope to find an example like this. The Dish has also been fully inspected under UV light which shows do restorations, or damages or any kind. As you can see I have taken a picture of the dish next to another celadon example to show the beautiful light green celadon color. The dish displays very nicely measures 5 1/2 inches wide, and sits 1 3/4 inches tall. The Dish would make a top quality addition to any collection, and is also a very fine investment piece.
BEST OF LUCK WITH THE sales!
