Jin Dynasty Cizhou-type Ware White-Ground Black-Painted Teabowl with Seven Luminaries Pattern


A bowl fired in a Cizhou-type kiln during the Jin dynasty. The vessel shape, reminiscent of a Korean salt jar with its bulgy waist, features the seven luminaries pattern painted on the white slipped exterior and covered with a transparent glaze until the waist. Likely employed as a teabowl in the Jurchen society undergoing Hanization or for their daily purposes, it exhibits the characteristic simplicity and sturdiness of Cizhou-type ware. With optimal depth and wall thickness for a winter teabowl, its plump form exudes a warm aesthetic.

Minor chips and dents are observable on the foot, while other than some kiln flaws, no significant defects are evident.
