Lg. Chinese Cizhou Song Vase w/ Floral Design - 1100AD
A globular bodied vase painted in dark reddish brown on a white slip. The main body has three large sprays of flowers. A large brown band encircles the shoulder and below the floral sprays are several thin bands - some straight and some wavy. Typical of this type. Period: Song (10th - 12th C.) Size: Height = 24.1 cm (9.5 inches) There is a tiny repair at the mouth rim (not noticeable - see last photo). Underneath there is a signature of the kiln. There is a very interesting, subtle hand print - probably of the artist himself.
