Seller: tjantiquties (1,280) 100%, Location: Tucson, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 223224768268 Chinese Song (11th – 12th Century) Dk. Brown Hares’ Fur Glaze Round Form Small Jar Classic example of a well-used Song Dynasty dark brown Hare’s fur glaze round bodied jar that was used for canning. Rounded body with short neck. It is wheel thrown and has a gray/brown grainy paste. The vessel has a narrow tall foot with a deeply recessed base. The glaze is thick dark brown with a white underglaze. The vessel form and deep recessed base indicate that this vessel was made in the middle Song Dynasty during the 11th and 12th century. Would have been used for canning. For reference to an almost identical glaze type see Robert Mowry’s 1997 Hare’s Fur, Tortoiseshell, and Partridge Feathers. Nigel Wood in his book Chinese Glazes, University of Pennsylvania Press, has an excellent discussion of these wares. The jar is in excellent condition for being a thousand years old with no chips, cracks or hairlines. It shows evidence of use and burial. The body waist glaze has dulled from wear and the foot has worn baby smooth. The rest of the surface is scratched from use. Under 40X magnification the unglazed surfaces are covered in manganese and other salts from burial. The glaze is nicely oxidized. The piece is notable for its vessel form, small size and great condition.
