Fine & Rare Chinese Ming Dynasty Glazed Pottery Zun Vase / Cup
This rare and interesting vessel was made during the Ming Dynasty (AD 1368 – 1644) and is in the form of a “zun”, an ancient ritual bronze vessel with a round or square vase-like shape, used for drinking wine as part of a ritual ceremony. This example is somewhat smaller than the full-sized bronze versions and was undoubtedly made specifically for burial. It is coated in green and yellow glazes, the green having acquired a silvery iridescence over much of its surface, a result of exposure to moisture during its long burial. It does have a slight lean to it, as can be seen in our images.
Height 16 cm (6.25 inches). It is in fine condition and has no restoration or repair.
