Large Ming Dynasty Longquan Tripod Censer - 15th Century. A beautiful Ming dynasty celadon glazed tripod censer, used for burning incense, from the Longquan kilns and dating to the 14th - 17th Century. The large shallow bowl with a short but wide neck, everted rim, circular base and three cylindrical feet. With curved decoration contained within diamonds on the exterior and further curved decoration on the neck. Covered throughout in a stunning green glaze, with the exception of the central interior of the bowl and the flat circular base (which remain reserved). The green glaze thickly dripping on the legs, creating a beautiful effect. Longquan wares are one of the principle ceramic types of the Song Dynasty. These kilns produced ceramics that are characterised by their white porcelain stoneware covered in beautiful, often thick, celadon glazes. This is a particularly large and fine example of a Ming Longquan ceramic with a good provenance, having been bought from the famous dealership John Sparks.
