A Chinese Shiwan stoneware fanghu vase with a jun glaze, late Ming/early Qing dynasty. The hollow tube handles associate this type of vase with the arrow game pastime but this example, given the small diameters involved would be unsuitable. The glaze is a transmutation glaze and its colour is decided by the kiln conditions at the peak temperature.
Shiwan (Shekwan) ceramics are from southern China, Guangzhou, Guangdong Province.
Approximately 21.7cm high. Weight is 935 gm. Rough around the foot-rim where the glaze has run. The belly has a little spot of evacuated glaze perhaps caused by a tiny kiln dust. One tube handle is broken.The mouth-rim has two chips. All shown in the photographs.
Please study the photographs.
