Chinese Ming Imperial Carved Longquan Celadon Lotus Charger

Lotus Charger

Ming Dynasty, 14th-15th Century
The lotus-form shallow body raised on a short ring foot, the barbed flared rim enclosing a cavetto carved with a central lotus blossom within key-fret banding, covered allover in a lustrous blue-green glaze pooling to a deeper shade in the recesses, the base with an unglazed ring, burnt-orange in the firing.  The lotus figure has been used in ancient China to imply the female form.  Use your imagination.  Some glaze imperfections.

Provenance – Estate of Corlan Glaws
Diameter: 14-3/4 in (37.5 cm)
