A large black glazed bowl with iron oxide splashes
Jin dynasty, 12th/13th century
Molded with a slightly in-curved rim to the wide, curving well covered in an iron-rich glaze of blue-black hue splashed with five large russet patches amid tinier russet flecks that continue on the exterior walls, ending unevenly above the carefully cut foot and recessed base to expose the underlying gray clay fabric.
