Why this is a
Masterpiece

The celadon glaze, flickering with yellow-like jade, is typical of precious Tang Yue Ware.

History of the Object
This begonia-shaped bowl was modeled after the Tang dynasty gold and silverwares. Small-sized Tang Yue Ware porcelain bowls of this type have been unearthed from the area around Shanglinhu, Cixi, Zhejiang Province, but large ones of this kind have never been seen.
