Guest Book

This delightful small pottery bowl was made during the late Song dynasty of China (around 1200 A.D.).

Originating from the Jian kilns of Fujian province, it has a base of rough, unglazed clay, and a rare streaked ‘hare’s fur’ glaze, made using iron oxide in the firing process.

The rim has a rust red glaze, and would have been made separately from the main body.

Coming from an un-named shipwreck (possibly the Lianjiang wreck), it is in fair condition with degradation to the glaze (particularly on the rim), a large filled in rim chip and very thin associated hairline that spreads around part of the base, and a few smaller rim chiups and nibbles. The glaze is also scratched and scuffed.

The attractive streaky oil effect to the glaze is perfectly visible, however.

Size: 4'' in width and 1,75'' in height
