About this item

Presenting two very special pieces from Henan in the heart of China; widely regarded as the Cradle of Chinese civilization (along with Shanxi and Shaanxi provinces).

The gourd form vase is by Chinese master ceramist Wēn Wǔyī and the baluster form is by the HuaYu Kiln, who represents the Song Dynasty Guan Kiln and Enamel Research Institute.

These two pieces are reproductions of what is known as 鈞窯 or 'Jun Ware', a type of chinese pottery which experts will commonly date to the Song dynasty (960 - 1269 ad.). Genuine Jun ware has been and continues to be highly collectable but expensive. At an auction at Christie's New York in 2016, prices included USD 52,500 for a small blue bowl, USD 112,500 for a blue plate splashed with purple, and USD 389,000 for a round official Jun "jardinière.

The wares are stoneware in terms of Western classification, and "high-fired" or porcelain in Chinese terms (where the class of stoneware is not generally recognised). The Jun glaze is a complex glaze which included blue-grey, sky-blue, moon-white, red and purple, the most prized have crimson or purple splashes, and so these two pieces are representations of this. The Flambé glaze, a transmutation of the Jun glaze has been made famous in more modern days times by Royal Doulton and was revived by Bernard Moore (1850-1935, England) at the turn of the 20th century.
