Why this is a
Masterpiece

The presented object enchants with its simplicity. This porcelain vase of celadon glaze is decorated with charming irregular underglaze blue and red patches, which produces a shape of a semi-abstractive (peach) fruit.

History of the Object
Celadon glaze was known and highly valued in Korea, China, Japan, and the Middle East. Its colour varied depending on the changes that took place during firing. It could be olive green, grey-green, or light green. Important centres of its production included Yüeh and Lung-ch’üan in China.
