Celadon Plate

Celadon Plate靑磁象嵌花鳥文陶板

Description

Very few rectangular celadon plates like this one have survived, making this a precious artifact. But beyond its scarcity, this plate stands out for its exceptional inlaid design of a bird perched on a tree branch, which is reminiscent of a painting. To create this elegant design with a stable composition, the branches and flowers were inlaid first, followed by the bird. The inlaid design is perfectly accentuated by the celadon glaze, conveying the sensation of looking at a painting of a bird and flowers against a background of blue sky.
