Seller: tjantiquties (1,278) 100%, Location: Tucson, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 223215520338 Chinese Yuan Dynasty (14th Century) Dark Brown w/ Rustic Hints Hares’ Fur Glaze Rounded Body Small Neck Jar Yuan Dynasty round body small neck jar with a classic Hare’s fur dark brown glaze with rustic hints. The body of this jar is made of grainy brown stoneware typical of pieces made in the Fujian area kilns. The form is bulbous with a small long neck ending in an out turned large rim. Jars like this would have been used to hold liquids such as rice wine. The dark brown glaze has great depth and shine with hints of rust over the vessel. The affect is created by using a rustic underglaze that comes through the thin upper dark brown (almost black) glaze. This hare’s fur glaze was developed in the Southern Song Dynasty and continued in use into the Yuan Dynasty. The base is thick and vertical typical of Yuan Dynasty pieces. The base has an extremely wide very shallow foot that looks like it was made in the later Yuan Dynasty when bases became flat. This is why I classify this as a Yuan Dynasty piece but would date in the early14th Century. For reference to almost identical glaze types 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. A discussion of these wares from the Fujian region can be found at The jar is in excellent condition for its age with no chips, cracks or hairlines. This piece shows lots of wear around the rim and over the whole body where it was held and scratched during use. The base shows a lot of wear. The glaze is pleasantly oxidized. This is a very large piece of this form and not often seen. This jar would be a highlight in a Yuan Dynasty stoneware collection.
