Song Dynasty - Yuan Dynasty
Jun ware bowl. The shallow bowl has an inturned rim and small ring foot, and is covered with the greyish-blue glaze with purple blotch that is associated with the Jun kilns 鈞窯. The Jun kilns produce cermaics in this style during the Song and Yuan dynasites (10th through 14th centuries). The glaze is visibly thinner and more translucent at the rim, and thick and pooling close to the unglazed buff-colored ring foot. The bowl fused with the rough clay saggar on which it stood in the kiln when the stack of saggars and bowls collapsed during firing.
Gift of Mrs. Charles Platt Jr.
