This is a very nice Song Dynasty (960 A.D.~1270 A.D.) black Jian ware temmoku tea bowl possibly from the Wuyi mountain kiln in Fujian province. It has nice slightly iridescent glaze with gray body and a preferred glaze style for the ancient whipped Chinese "white" tea. It was excavated before WWII by Marshall Plummer and James Foster. It is 1 ¾” high and 4” wide. It is in great condition.
