This is a superb and rare Yaozhou ware russet porcelain vase, brown glaze over a grey-white paste, Northern China, Song or Jin dynasty, 960-1234. Russet- or persimmon-glazed wares from Yaozhou were probably first made to imitate dingyao pieces, but the yaozhouyao glaze fires with a uniquely metallic lustre, as in this example. The paste on the footring and the unglazed base has fired to a rich creamy-colour, which is quite common with these brown-glazed wares...

It was not until the Qing dynasty that the Jingdezhen potters finally mastered the production of this very difficult bright black enamel glaze. Unfortunately, these vases were frequently fired a third time overpainted with intricate gold enamel patterns, but the plain monochromes are much more achieved. The very elegant form of this vase with its long neck and compressed body derived ultimately from Han bronze models, and became especially popular in Qianlong times...
