This is a fine, beautiful and brightly coloured example of a small “Jun” ware bowl which was treated as a “manufacturing defect”. The bowl is well glazed in a bright lavender colour with pooling of a bright blue sky glaze at the base of the bowl. It would have been a fine piece if not for an overglazed which has resulted in an overflow of a big pool of the glaze down to the sagger. When it cooled down, the glaze glued the base of the bowl to the sagger. This is a good Song dynasty (960 – 1276 A.D) example. The bowl makes an excellent research and study subject specimen as well as a unique display item of a Song dynasty “Jun”.bowl.
The condition is as per shown in the picture. .
The dimension of the bowl with the sagger is: The width is 15cm and the height is 6.5cm.
