A CHINESE ROBIN’S EGG GLAZED WATER POT FOR THE SHOLAR’S TABLE.

This charming globular water coupe is decorated with sprigs of flowering prunus, suggesting the arrival of Spring, against a mottled turquoise and deep blue ‘Robin’s Egg’ glaze. The interior is thinly glazed with the turquoise.

The catalogue “Ceramics in Scholarly Taste”, South East Asian Ceramic Society, 1993, exhibits a virtually identical water pot as part of a set for the desk, item 96, dated to the early 20th century.

3.1/4 inches (8.3cm) diameter, 2.3/4 inches (7cm) high. Perfect condition.

I am based in the United Kingdom so charges made to credit cards are in GBP ( British Pounds ) and your credit card issuer automatically converts the charge to the currency of your country. Payment may also be made by direct bank transfer in GBP. I am sorry but I cannot accept a cash transfer payment by Western Union as I don’t have an office nearby.
