Lot 71. A Cizhou-type black glazed jar and a cover with russet-splashed decoration, Northern Song-Jin dynasty (960-1234); 5 1/8in (13cm) height of jar and cover. Estimate US$ 3,000 - 5,000 (€ 2,700 - 4,400). © Bonhams.
The jar potted with an upright neck and body of U-shape tapering sharply inward toward the foot ring and recessed base, the black glaze on the exterior splashed with large russet patches of 'partridge feather' type, but the interior walls showing a suffused russet and black glaze layer; the domed cover possibly associated but similarly glazed and of similar date.
Provenance: Property from a San Francisco Estate.
