Song Dynasty Antique Celadon Plate
This rare preserved Song Dynasty celadon plate has a design devoid of decoration that makes it look like a beautiful, untouched piece of jade. Its bottom rests on a base that grows in layers around a small foot that grows along fine grooved borders to an openly flared edge that ends in an exquisite molded frame.
The interior descends through gleaming grooved borders to an exquisite hand-carved central lotus flower; as delicate as it is striking, one of the most important symbols of Asian culture. It’s an elegant piece that shines like a precious stone and brings airs of the distant Chinese nobility of the Song dynasty.
