Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Qingbai Porcelain Bottle / Jar
This porcelain bottle or vase was made during the 13th - 14th century, most likely at one of the kilns in Fujian province. It has been made in three separate moulded sections that have been luted together. The surface and inner mouth are coated in a finely-crackled translucent greenish-blue Qingbai glaze, relatively dark in colour. The mouth edge is quite roughly formed and what may initially appear to be a chip is not as it is covered with the original glaze. However, there is a small surface chip to the glaze on the flat top of the mouth. Overall though it is in fine condition with no restoration or repair. Height 12.25 cm.
For information: Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368).
