C e l es ti a l N o n e s u ch. A Yaozhou green incised ewer. Chinese, presumably dating to the Northern Song Dynasty, early 12th century. The yaozhou kilns started making ewers of this type in the Tang dynasty. Most yaozhou ewers have a plain surface; the unusual carved motif on the side of this piece rivals the fully carved decoration seen on a pot with three legs now in the Shanghai Museum Shanghai Mus.
A similar pot discovered in a tomb dating to 1117, with overall carved floral sprays, provides a guide for dating such pieces WW 1981, 8: 89, fig. London, Thames and Hudson, 2011. This piece has grooved vertical and horizontal bands on the neck, incised lotus scrolls on the shoulder and above the foot, carved relief floral decoration across the body, and an incise decorated handle.
