- Further information
The vase is moulded with a stout cylindrical body, sloping shoulders and a long narrow tubular neck with a wide flattened mouth rim. A pair of dragon shaped handles decorates the neck. This type of celadon vase became very popular during the 12th-13th centuries CE, and is found more frequently in Longquan ware than any other. Such a vase was produced continuously during the Ming period. This is a very good example of the Ming type.
