China, 12th-13th century. Finely potted with shallow sides and a carefully cut foot, with a pale bluish-lavender glaze draining to a mushroom tone around the extremities, the well with a purple splash.
Provenance: Collection Friedrich Otto Hasse (1886-1964), Bremen, Germany. Thence by decent. See image of the collector’s cabinet, on the right side of the top shelf.
Condition: Superb condition with some wear overall, and a bit more to the well, in general as expected on a piece of this age. The crackles of the glaze are from firing. Not even the tiniest chip or any other damage whatsoever!
