Fine Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Qingbai Porcelain Granary Jar
This very interesting porcelain model of a covered jar in the form of a storehouse (granary) was made during the 13th - 14th century, most likely at one of the kilns in Fujian province. The wide cover has been made in the form of a tiled roof, the jar with vertical ridges, representing the wall of the granary. The cover, the outer wall and inner mouth of the jar are coated in an attractive finely-crackled translucent greenish-blue Qingbai glaze.
Height 11.5 cm, diameter 12.5 cm. It is in fine condition with no restoration or repair.
For information: Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368).
Two very similar examples are illustrated and described in the fine Percival David Foundation book, "Qingbai Ware: Chinese Porcelain of the Song and Yuan Dynasties" (ISBN 0 7286 0339 X) a book we highly recommend.
