A fine and extremely rare Ming dynasty Chinese 'Jun' glazed porcelain tripod incense burner, the small size censer superbly potted with a compressed globular body rising to a short neck and a flat top rim, supported by three small low feet, covered allover with a finely crazed 'Jun' glaze of pale grayish-blue tone thinning to a buff hue to edges of the feet and top rims, interior of the vessel with visible swirled pattern of the potting technique. Comes with a later date wooden stand and cover.

NOTE : It is very rare to find a Ming dynasty porcelain censer of this type with such an attractive light blue glaze, as opposed to celadon glaze where they were more commonly found.

DATE : Chinese, Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644).

MARK : no mark or signature.

SIZE : approximately 5 1/4" (13.5 cm) overall height including wood stand and cover; about 2 3/4" (7 cm) high without stand or cover.

CONDITION : in perfect condition; it leans very slightly; a few small original production glaze faults and a tiny production nib to the tip of one foot only. No chips, no cracks or any damages, and no repairs. Wooden stand and cover are also in excellent condition with no damage.

SHIPPING : Inclusive.
