Round mouth, copper edge inlaid along the mouth, very shallow wall, short circle foot. The surface of the plate is lightly carved with a coiled dragon pattern. Mat burning, green glaze applied inside and outside, gray green color. The glaze is brown and transparent. The round foot is decorated at the end, and the foot wall is characterized by multi-layer glazing. The foot end is unglazed, and some parts show gray black bodies. Generally, most of the official kiln wares of the Southern Song Dynasty are plain, and even at the two kiln sites of Tiger Cave and Suburb Altar, there are few specimens with patterns. By contrast, it seems that this legendary artifact is rare and precious as the morning star.
