From a Northern California private collection The main Chinese ceramic for export in the 13th to 14th centuries was the Longquan celadon of Zhejiang province. Glazed in monochrome green, Longquan-type wares have been found in archaeological sites around the world. A large number of examples survive in the Topkapi Palace Museum as well as the Fustat ruins. Longquan pieces’ rich, luxurious glaze commanded powerful allure: while the native Chinese praised Longquan glaze as jade-like, 14th century Indian Muslims believed celadons could detect poison. This dish bears similarity to wares found in the Sinan wreck of 1323. Its thick, plum-like green glaze, uninterrupted by crazing, is of a type favored by collectors. Most Yuan/Ming Longquan dishes feature molded designs, which were quicker and easier to produce. Ones with hand-carved (incised) designs are decidedly more beautiful and rare.
