Ming Dynasty Cizhou-type Ware Iron Painted Small Jar | China, 15-16C


A small jar baked in a Cizhou-type ware kiln in the Ming dynasty. Compared to the Song-Yuan dynasty, the white background is thinner and the painting taste is different, but the bottom-squeezed vessel shape remains the old style.

Until then, the Cizhou ware kilns had been constantly developing, but since the Ming dynasty, the rise of Jingdezhen provoked momentous change in the flow of Chinese ceramics, Cizhou ware began to show a deadlock. There is no drastic renewal from Yuan dynasty style in this jar, but a trace of the body joint and the light brush strokes of the Southern School painting-like style reflect the trend of that time.

There are no notable defects other than a minor chip on the base.
