A Ge-type figure of a Chinese scholar
Ge type ceramics, created by Sung dynasty court's potters in about the middle half of the 12th century, are grayish white ceramics glazed with a close crackle. The Ge type ceramics had become the inspiration for the latter potters ever since. Especially in the 18th and 19th century, the Ge type became so popular that many high quality imitations were produced during this period of time.

Today, we proudly present an extensive collection of large size Ge type ceramics including many kinds of vases, censors, drum, plate and doll. All of them produced in the 19th century with a decoration of ge-type golden thread and iron line glaze. Our highlights are a variety of vases and censors. Feel free to contact us for more photographs and further details.
