A Song Pottery Dish From a Shipwreck 11th Century

A Song Pottery dish from a shipwreck, Guangzhou, Xicun kilns, 11th century. This Song pottery dish is made from a very light open bodied clay. The design of a flower from a small leafy branch has become highly abstracted, it was painted in only a few seconds with a wet brush that carried only a meagre amount of iron-oxide pigment. This Northern Song dish might be from the so-called Renzong Wreck, named after Emperor Renzong of Song 1022-1063.

£480.00



Condition: In good condition, the dish is very dry due to the glaze being erroded by saline water. Some wear, a few minor iron stains.
