Northern Song Celadon 北宋青瓷水盂

This is a photo of a Northern Song Dynasty celadon water jar. Notice how it is not so green, but more of a yellow hue. The crackleware glaze is also apparent. Although they are called "green porcelain" in Chinese, and celadon today is defined by a green color, the earliest celadon pieces were not that green at all.
