 SOLD ! Thank you very much ! 
A superb museum piece. Not only the shape of this piece is extremely rare. This piece belongs also to the few Song Dynasty Dehua ware pieces, the earliest kind of Dehua ware. A very hard, high fired clay on this piece did allow a extremely thinly potting of the body. H : 9 cm. Diameter of the body : 10,2 cm. ( From the elephant trunk to the end of the tail : 11,9 cm. Condition : The center of the base was broken out and is refilled, further this piece is in an excellent condition. Blue and white Kendis in the shape of a elephant are to be seen relatively frequent, but it is nearly impossible to find a Elephant Kendi from the Song Dynasty !
