A extremely rare Southern Song ( 1127 – 1279 ) Guan ware, Guanyao washer. The well potted body in a very nice shape covered with a grayish-sea-green glaze with a highly attractive crackle. The light grey ware burnt brown in the firing. Guan´, the official ware of the southern Song court, is perhaps the most admired and desirable of all Chinese ceramics. This rare washer is probably an excavated piece but it comes from an old east German collection. Diameter : 17,2 cm. H : 5,3 cm. Condition : Perfect.
