C e l es ti a l N o n e s u ch. A very nice white-glazed stoneware bowl.
Quite a heavily potted piece. This piece is probably dating between the late Jin to mid Yuan Dynasties, due to the cut of the foot and the presence of an unglazed ring in the center of the bowl to allow for stacked firing. Starting from the mid-Yuan, there was apparently a tendency in Northern China to simplify as much as possible the manufacturing technique, and stacking was often performed by putting five or six small amounts of a mixture of body clay, sand, rice flour and some water, in the center of the dish, creating a circle supporting the foot of the next one.
A great object for study or display, this will make a nice addition to any student or appreciators collection of Chinese art and artifacts. Very good condition with no detectable repairs. Exhibits extensive signs of age such as surface wear and weathering. As they are part of the description, please enlarge all photographs to better ascertain details and condition.The packing peanuts we use are recyclable: #6. Thank you for shopping with us.
