Quirky Cizhou type, heavy, completely black glazed, waisted beaker from the Ming/Qing Dynasty. I am guessing that was used in a Chinese Apothecary, but this is just a best guess to its function. There is an intentionally drilled hole in the base (no it is not a TL test), which I can fill on request. Lovely thick glaze and aside from a couple of chips on the outside of the foot, in very good condtion. H: 13cm/5.1in- width at base : 8.7cm/3.8in and width at mouthrim : 11cm/4.3in.
