Secure Payments By
Size: 27 cm (10.5 inches) tall. Condition: Excellent condition, no chips cracks or restoration. This is a Chinese Jun ware stoneware vase modelled after a bronze vessel. It is thickly potted, with the glaze stopping short of the foot, which has quite a few kiln accretions and is browny/red, more red/orange on the unglazed base. The glaze is quite a rich blue, with crazing and pitting all over, on one side with purple splash with white patches. The vase is in the style of Chun ware made in the Song (or Sung) Dynasty (960-1279), at Yu-Hsien in Honan province. Two types of the original Chun ware exist - those made for the Imperial court (though not officially Imperial ware), and coarser wares, more similar to this vase. The glaze effects obtained by the used of copper oxides in a reduction firing, including the purple splashes which were added towards the end of the period, have long been admired, and were imitated by European art potters in the late 19th and early 20th centuries (e.g. August Delaherche in France and William Staite Murray in England). This vase is however Chinese, probably made about the same time as those potters (i.e. late 19th/early 20th century), and attempting to use the same methods as the 13th century potters.
