One of a kind, stoneware amphora with brown and black inner glaze, circa 11th century Jin Dynasty. I have only seen one other Chinese ceramic in this shape, which was a Song Dynasty Yaozhou piece described as being a plummet/plum bob. This piece had a couple of firing chips on the mouth which I filled and simply covered with gold leaf and lacquer, a museum quality perspex stand is included. Item H: 12.8cm/5in and D: 6.8cm/2.6in.

Good Jizhou glazed jar from a Jiangxi kiln with lid circa Southern Song Dynasty. Please note that the lid and body are slightly different as the lid’s glaze lacks the craclature of the body with more of “tea dust” type glaze. Possibly from the same kiln- “matched but not married”. Having said this they look good together and unless closely scrutinized its hard to notice. There is a small chip and tiny frit on the lid, and tiny hairline that does not go through to the othe...
