Catalogue Note

The distinctive form of this bowl was inspired by Middle Eastern pottery and metalwork. See Margaret Medley, Metalwork and Chinese Ceramics, London, 1972, pls 15a and b, illustrating a 12th-13th century Persian bronze bowl alongside a Longquan bowl of corresponding form. 

Compare a similar bowl from the collection of the Zhejiang Provincial Museum, Hangzhou, included in the exhibition Céladons. Grès des musées de la province du Zhejiang, Chine, Musée Cernuschi, Paris, 2005, cat. no. 77.
