Ming Dynasty - Funeary Green Glaze Vase
A very beautiful green funerary vase potted from earthenware. It is slightly heavy as there is earth harden on the inside of the vase, due to the long period of burial. The center part of the body appears to be molded in two parts and probably lute together by a clay liquid slip that acted like glue. Little attention was given to the finishing of the lute line, which exhibited as protruded line on the surface. There are crack lines on the body

No repairs or restorations. The mat green glaze shows an iridescent whitish colour. There are degradation, cracks on the body, chips, losses and abrasions, as a consequence of long period of burial and subsequent cleaning.

The measurement of the funeary vase is: Height 29.5cm and the diameter (base) is 13.8cm.
