On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 171
Opaque jade green. Vertical, rounded rim; convex side, bulging outward slightly, then curving in sharply, and finally turned downward. On exterior, below rim, molding comprising two horizontal grooves, the upper narrow, the lower broad, with a raised horizontal ridge below; on undercurve of side, a faint groove above a raised band. Polished exterior; pitting of surface bubbles with some weathering in grooves and chips on exterior; dulling and creamy iridescent weathering on interior, rim, and side edges; bottom edge unweathered.
This rim fragment belongs to a large shallow dish made in a rather unusual opaque blue-green (jade) color.
