Bought this little vase at GW today because I liked it, not so much for any kind of value. It wasn't marked and didn't seem that old to me with no visible crazing in the glaze. A two minute search turned up this exact vase online. -Mike-
Celadon Definition Courtesy of Ruby Lane website :
Celadon, a famous type of ancient Chinese stoneware, came into being during the period of the Five Dynasties(907-960). It is characterized by simple but refined shapes, jade-like glaze, solid substance and a distinctive style. As the celadon ware produced in Longquan County. Zhejiang Province, is most valued, so it is also generally called Longquan qingci. Its Chinese name, qingci, means "greenish porcelain"
