Rare Chinese Jin Dynasty Cizhou Enamelled Stoneware Figure
This small Cizhou stoneware figure was made during the Jin Dynasty (AD 1115 - 1234) at one of the kilns in the north, possibly the kiln in Changzhi county, Shanxi province, a known source of colourful toys. It is "heavily-potted" and coated in a very finely-crackled thick creamy-white glaze on top of which are the remains of coloured enamels. The standing figure wears a long-sleeved robe and holds what appears to be a bottle or vase.
Height 12 cm (4.75 inches). Despite having clearly been broken into several parts and re-stuck, it remains an interesting and presentable figure.
