Celadon pot produced in the Longquan Kiln

Yuan Dynasty
Height: 25cm
Mouth diameter: 4.5cm
Foot diameter: 8.3cm

Straight mouth growing gradually broader downward, round belly contracted downward, ring foot slightly splayed. There is a curved long spout at one side of the pot, and a curved handle right opposite it. A flat lid with round knob is on the top. The design is graceful: the spout and the handle are arranged harmoniously, and so do the lid and the mouth. The pot is slim in the upper part and plump in the lower part, and the lines are smooth. Celadon glaze is applied to the whole pot, with the mouth and the foot revealing the base. The evenly-applied glaze is lustrous, plain, smooth and elegant.
