Song Dynasty? stone ware vase
by Sigurd Villumsen
About 20 years ago my father bought a green stoneware vase, together with a couple of other antiques.
He has been told by one or two collectors of chinese porcelain, that the vase could be a chinese vase from the song dynasti, but that they had never seen a glazing like that.
When i look at christie's or other auction sites i can see that the colour of the vase does in fact look quite typical for the period, but neither the shape nor the texture of the glazing looks like anything i can find.
As i can see from this blog, you have a lot of experience regarding chinese antiques, and i really hope that either you or one of the other readers have some info.
Any inform would greatly be appreciated.
Information about the vase:
I believe that the vase is made from stoneware, but I'm not 100% sure
Height about 21 cm
width about 23 cm
The color is slightly greener than can be seen from the pictures
The condition is quite good, but the glaze is slightly cracked.
