Very fine and rare pair of underglazed blue and white porcelain jars with lids, from the Southern Yunnan Kiln of Yuxi. This type of ceramic is a fairly recent discovery, the first pieces having hit the market around 2003, although the earliest dating to having found this kind of ware was 1973. The best dating I can give this given its simple design would be late Yuan to early Ming, circa the 12th century, although ceramics from this area have been produced from the Song to Late Ming...

Rare Chinese Yellow Rosewood (Huanghuali) Ming bowl D: 18.4cm/7.2in and H: 5.3cm/2.1in. As is, given that authentic Ming furniture sells in the millions of dollars range this is a pretty good deal. The wide “Bi” shaped footrim was a common feature of Ming porcelain which gives credibility to the dating. Other than applying neutral colored wood oil to the surface I have undertaken no other restoration or conservation, anything more would destroy the integrity of the piece...

Impossible to accurately date, the carving in the hole is quite old probably over 1000 years but the outer edge and surface chipping has been has been touched up by machine to polish out any old blemishes so I will guarantee this as antique and over 100 years old. The mottled color is all natural and some inclusions giving it a nice celadon look, is particularly nice, definitely not a modern reproduction...
