Description: This white glazed stem cup was beautifully decorated with brownish black paint. Produced well at the Huozhou kiln of Shanxi province of China in the 13th-14th century, this ware was preserved perfectly. Huozhou kiln was one of the typical kilns which produced Cizhou wares since Northern Song dynasty(12TH Century). The unique characteristics of wares from Huozhou was on the foot rim where the domed supporting points were obviously seen. Otherwise the cellular form of the deposits on the foot rim in the enlarged pictures afforded the evidence that it was an excavation piece. The white glaze of this ware was looked much yellowish in real than in the pictures. Last four pictures were documented items in the Museum of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka Japan. Date: Yuan Dynasty (AD1271-1368) Height: 9.8cm Provenance: Huozhou kiln of Shanxi Province. Condition: Perfect.
