Stunning flambé glazed jar with predominant pomegranate (ish) outer glaze and azure blue inner glaze. This piece appears to be emulating a Song official Jun ware as it has the typical brown glaze inside the foot found only the “Imperial” pieces, but this shape was never found in this class. Most likely this is from the Shekwan/Shiwan kiln in Guangdong, as they were the masters at reproducing the classic Song glazes, although this piece has the weight and feel of stoneware more than pottery. Difficult to date, could be late 19th century to pre 1960, so I will guarantee dating to no later than 1960. H: 9.5/3.8in and D: 12cm/4.8in.
