- Pot with Celadon Glaze and Flowers-birds Design
- Artist, etc:
Celadon pots have a characteristic transparent blue-green glaze. While it is rare for celadon pottery to have pictures, this piece’s front adorns drawings of flowers and birds, while a Chinese poem is inscribed on the reverse. The flowers are assumed to be the large blossoms of the Japanese peony and Japanese bush clover, while the birds appear to be playing in the picture. The tint of the celadon serves as a background to this piece, which gives off a refreshing impression.
