A JUN PURPLE-SPLASHED TRIPOD CENSER, SONG TO YUAN
Item Details
Description
A JUN PURPLE-SPLASHED TRIPOD CENSER, NORTHERN SONG TO YUAN DYNASTY
China, 960-1368. The globular body supported on three coiled feet (rare!) and rising to a waisted neck with flared rim. Covered overall in a thick pale-blue glaze, decorated with purple splashes suffused with hues of malachite-green to the exterior and with dense black specks to the interior.

Provenance: From the collection of Derek and Sonja Howlett, no. 496 (according to label to base). Derek and Sonja were Curator and Research Assistant at The Powell-Cotton Museum during the 1980s. The museum is located in Birchington, Kent, United Kingdom, and houses the diverse personal collections of noted explorer Percy Powell-Cotton. It also contains the collections of Powell-Cotton's two daughters, Antoinette and Diana Powell-Cotton, who shared their father's passion.
Condition: Two feet with a small loss, one with an associated old repair. Minor related cracks. Otherwise in very good condition with old wear and some firing flaws, including dark spots, glaze recesses, and glaze lines.

Weight: 378.4 g
Dimensions: Height 9.8 cm

Expert's note: Wares from the type site Juntai in Yu county, Henan province, an area formerly known as Junzhou, are remarkable for their luscious thick glaze of intense coloration which can vary from light blue to deep turquoise. It was in the early twelfth century that potters started applying splashes of copper to the glaze before firing, resulting in patches of purple, lavender and tones of deep blue on the milky-blue primary glaze. The present bowl shows patches of malachite green precipitated among the purple clouds, which has been noted to occur due to a high concentration of copper oxide. See Rosemary Scott, Imperial Taste: Chinese Ceramics from the Percival David Foundation, London, 1989, page 39.

Auction result comparison: Compare a closely related Jun tripod censer, dated to the Northern Song dynasty, at Sotheby's New York in Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art on 17 March 2009, lot 14, sold for USD 12,500.
