Very fine Chinese Yuan Dynasty porcelain potted in a summer tea bowl shape, with rounded cavetto, raised upon slightly concaved and narrow foot base. Covered overall in a pale-turquoise-blue glaze falling short of the foot, revealed the olive brown shades around the rim. A splash of purplish-blue accent characterized the cavetto. The underbase glaze stopped before the foot base, displayed the pale-creme ground with burnt orange and darker spots in the firing.
