Seller: tjantiquties (1,232) 100%, Location: Tucson, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 371786465990 Chinese Song Dynasty (960 AD-1279 AD) Qingbai Stoneware Vase W/ Dragon Figure and Standing Figures Classic beautiful Qingbai stoneware vase depicting cultural perceptions during the Song Dynasty period dating 960 AD-1279 AD. This piece has been held by a family who acquired it in the 1920s in Southeast Asia. Qingbai ceramics were made at Jingdezhen and many other southern kilns from the time of the Northern Song Dynasty. The style was dominate in China in upper class homes and imperial courts and found in upper-class tombs during the Song Dynasty. Qingbai means “clear-bluish-white”. The glaze is a porcelain glaze because it was made using porcelain stone. The glaze is clear. When applied over a white porcelain body the glaze produces a greenish-blue color. Molded decorations such as this piece tended to be produced later in the Song period. This is a classic Qingbai vase that is tall and thin (almost in the form of a bowling pin) with an out flaring bulbous finish. A molded dragon figure is draped around the upper neck. Opposite the dragon is a seated figure. Below at mid body are six standing figures. The design is classic for the period. The bottom fourth of the vase is unglazed. The piece is in excellent condition for being 800 to 900 years old. There are the expected nicks around the protruding edge near the top. The foot also has a number of chips. The glaze is grazing and some of the molding is splitting but all of the molded figures are intact. These pieces are more difficult to find particularly in this intact condition. The quality of the moldings on this piece is far more detailed than most pieces. You can see similar pieces in the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Asian Art Museum, The National Museum of Malaysia and other museums throughout the world. A Song Dynasty classic to add to your collection. Dimensions: Height 17 1/8 inches (44 cm), Greatest Diameter 5 inches (12.7 cm).
