Fine Chinese Song Dynasty Qingbai Porcelain Bowl
This fine porcelain bowl was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 – 1279), more specifically during the 11th – 12th Century. It is of an attractive conical form and stands on a high foot. The porcelain has a good ring when tapped and is particularly translucent. Qingbai glazes can vary in colour according to conditions in the kiln during firing; this bowl is very unusual as the glaze has fired to a very pale, almost yellow, the colour emphasized more when the glaze has sagged a little and is at its thickest.
Diameter 16 cm (6.25 inches). There is a tiny chip to the edge of the rim, otherwise fine condition with no restoration or repair.
For information: this bowl has been part of Brian Page’s personal collection for well over twenty years and has not previously been offered for sale.
