This is a superb and rare Yaozhou ware russet porcelain vase, brown glaze over a grey-white paste, Northern China, Song or Jin dynasty, 960-1234. Russet- or persimmon-glazed wares from Yaozhou were probably first made to imitate dingyao pieces, but the yaozhouyao glaze fires with a uniquely metallic lustre, as in this example. The paste on the footring and the unglazed base has fired to a rich creamy-colour, which is quite common with these brown-glazed wares...

This is a possible Jiajing piece as it has a purple undertone and no black spots, which was common for Jailing porcelain (During the Jailing period, the formula that was used to produce blue and white porcelain was generally low in iron and manganese which produced an undertone of purple). Inside this lovely bow, it depicts a scholar wearing high hat on a deer which is called “Lu Gao Sheng”. “Lu Gao Sheng” are phonograms of “deer”, “High, tall” and “To raise”...

It was not until the Qing dynasty that the Jingdezhen potters finally mastered the production of this very difficult bright black enamel glaze. Unfortunately, these vases were frequently fired a third time overpainted with intricate gold enamel patterns, but the plain monochromes are much more achieved. The very elegant form of this vase with its long neck and compressed body derived ultimately from Han bronze models, and became especially popular in Qianlong times...

Peach-bloom glaze or apple-red (Jiangdouhong) Liuye ping was an original and major innovation of Jingdezhen ware in the Kangxi Period (1661-1722). The deep red glaze is beautifully applied all over the body, giving way to the white base layer of glaze only at the mouthrim. This small but exquisite vase shows the perfection of Liuye ping: A fine and slender boy sits on a narrow recessed base (white)...

This bowl was probably intended to be used as a brushwasher...

This attractive barrel-shaped jar has a crackled cream glaze with a second bright green enamelled overglaze. A bright apple green enamel had been used previously but never as an overall monochrome glaze on top of a crackled one until the Kangxi period (1661-1722). This jar has a Kangxi four-character mark but dates, like almost all four-character “Kangxi” pieces, from the late nineteenth century. Height: 11.5 cm; diameter: 13 cm. Condition: A couple of patches where the green enamel h...

Produced in the Kangxi period (1661-1722), this fine plate was intended for the export market and painted in the fashionable Japanese style. Jingdezhen's monopoly on porcelain production was broken in 1616 when Japanese potters at Arita figured out how to produce their own porcelain wares. These were exported to the outside world from the port at Imari, and their dramatic combination of underglaze blue with overglaze red and gold proved an enormous success. The demand for “Imari” wares was s...

This bowl is a rare and very finely-potted presentation bowl that would have been offered to the recipient to celebrate an auspicious occasion. It is simultaneously simple and very complex in its design and meanings. Overall it gives the impression of purity, being predominantly white and moulded in the form of a lotus blossom. On the exterior, the white porcelain is covered overall with a sgraffiato design of waves - again, the cleansing power of water. In addition, it has skillfully painted an...

The compressed globular body is raised on three thick, tapered legs and divided into three lobes loosely carved with a floral scroll, rising to an everted rim set with two rope-twist handles. It is covered overall with a glaze of sea-green tone, in places suffused with minute bubbles. There is a circular aperture in the base, a characteristic which is occasionally found in censers of this form, presumably used to clean out the interior. It dates from the fifteenth century. A larger censer of...
