Yaozhou-style ware, possibly made at Xunyi (Kerr 2004: 59)

public_access_description
This dish is an example of the ceramics made at the kilns of Xunyi in the Shaanxi province of China. During the Jin dynasty (1115-1234), the Xunyi kilns made wares in imitation of the widely popular Yaozhou wares that were made only 70 kilometers away. It is similar to Yaozhou ware in its carved floral design and glaze-type, but its body is coarser, and its glaze is tinged a yellow hue, instead of the olive green common to Yaozhou ware. The firing method at Xunyi is also unlike that of Yaozhou, and is revealed by the unglazed circle at the centre of the dish. A common space and money saving measure was to fire dishes in stacks, leaving behind an unglazed ring where the base of the dish above would have rested.
