Qing Dynasty Cizhou-type Ware Black Glazed Circular Flask with Leaf Design in Relief


A flat circular flask crafted in Pengcheng Town during the Qing dynasty. The leaf pattern in relief adorns the face, while black glaze embellishes entirely until the sides of the base. Designed initially as a sake bottle for portability, it features two ears on the shoulders for passing strings through. This baoyueping-shaped flat circular flask is a standardised type available in various sizes, with this particular example being the smallest. Its glossy, jet-black skin beautifully complements the depiction of spring wildflowers.

The glaze was applied halfway on the inside. There is a chip on the base, but otherwise no odour and significant flaws, the flask is in good condition.
