A moulded Korean celadon leaf-scroll pattern bowl

高麗十三世紀     青瓷印纏枝紋盌

The bowl is of stoutly potted rounded form supported on a low straight foot. The well of the interior is densely moulded overall in relief with scrolling branches carrying numerous small, veined leaves, all around a whorl in the slightly recessed centre. An opaque grey-green glaze covers the bowl overall, including the underside of the foot and the shallow footrim, leaving three spurmarks unglazed.
