An important and extremely rare Northern Song dynasty Yaozhou celadon carved geometric pattern censer. Covered in an untuous and even olive green glaze typical of Northern Song Yaozhou wares. There are probably fewer than 20 genuine extant Yaozhou censers in this world. I have seen most museums, auctions and big collections. However, there are two cracks on the body and a chip on the mouth rim which are professionally repaired. These can be seen in the last enlargements taken under strong UV. Even so, this is still an extremely important and collectable item. Date: Northern Song dynasty (AD960-AD1127); Dimensions: W10cm, H10.9cm. Authenticity guaranteed forever. TL test by Oxford Authentication or C-Link or the Louvre can be done before purchase. However, all TL test fee must be settled first. 100% money back including TL test fee if tested fake by either of these three labs. Paypal welcomed.
