A rare and delicately potted Cizhou-type bowl. The exterior glazed a matt brown, while the interior is a smoother, off-white colored glaze. The rim is unglazed. The foot is well made, and fully glazed. From the Northern Song dynasty, C11-12th. Diameter 15.5 cm. Condition is not perfect (hence the price). It exhibits some rust colored leaching, and has a hairline crack, and firing fault to the exterior. There is some degradation to the glaze. A rare and attractive piece, nonetheless. Additional photos are available upon request. Provenance: from the collection of Jurgen Fischer; Austrian UHU glue heir. Collection sticker to the base.
