Sung Dynasty Glazed Ceramic Bowl, circa 960-1279 AD, CHINA

Provenance: ex Private collection and Melbourne Sales Rooms
Circa: 960 - 1279 AD
Age: Approx.750 years old
Size: 10.5cm diameter 
Condition: Very good with slight chip to rim

An extraordinarily beautiful translucent almost blueish off-white glazed ceramic bowl. The glaze reminds me of an delicate eggshell. Simple yet elegant as the Sung glazed wares were.
