Today we are delighted to offer for sale a very old and rare early Chinese antique pottery vase! This piece has one of the most wonderful, warm, time-earned patinas we have ever seen! This very old piece (possibly 18th century or earlier based on other known examples) is expertly hand-crafted of ceramic in an ovoid, ginger jar shaped and features a pale celadon glaze, with painted blue detailing. The glaze has acquired a wonderful patina, with crazing of the surface and minor losses revealing the inner layers of the ceramic. The colors of the glaze are just exquisite and feature earthy tones that are only acquired with the passage of time. The jar has a blue marking on the bottom. This exquisite pot presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with wear/patina/oxidation and minor losses to finish commensurate with age. An elegant piece that will add scholarly refinement to any room… A special piece for a special buyer!
