Lot 104. A Yaozhou black-glazed lobed ewer, Late Tang dynasty. 9 1/4in (23.5cm) high. Estimate US$ 7,000 - 9,000 (€6,000 - 7,800). Unsold. Photo: Bonhams.
The lobed, ovoid body rising from a neatly cut splayed foot, surmounted by a flaring neck set between a short tapering upright spout and a pinched double strap handle, the thick black glaze thinning at the edges and wiped clean at the base revealing the fine and dense buff stoneware body.
