Name: White Glazed Small Vessel
Era: Song Dynasty (960-1279)
Kilns: (origin): Dingyao Kiln
Specifications: Diameter 4.1 cm Height: 7.8 cm
Appraisal: This object was made in the Song Dynasty. Its clay body texture is very dense, sturdy and durable. The glaze color is pure white; therefore it is considered to be more beautiful than the common Ding wares, which are ivory colored porcelains. The tear-stain phenomenon appears on the white porcelains of the Ding ware, and is very obvious. This object is glossy, eye-pleasing, and rich in high artistic value. Highly collectible.
