Footnotes

  • 十二世紀 鈞窯天藍釉盤

    Jun ware, classified as one of the 'Five Classic Wares' of the Song dynasty, was produced primarily at a number of kilns in Henan province. The lavender-blue glaze on the present lot is subtly striking, exhibiting a sophistication and an elegant, restrained nature.

    This lot can be compared to a group of twenty Junyao shallow dishes of similar size and shape excavated at Fangcheng county, Henan province in 1976, see Liu Yusheng and Ma Yanpeng, 'Henan sheng Fangcheng xian chutu yipi Songdai ciqi' in Wenwu, 1983, pp.92-94, no.3. Compare also a similar Junyao shallow dish dated to the Northern Song dynasty from the Robert Lehman Collection, now at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (accession no. 1975.1.1650).

    鈞窯為宋代五大名窯之一,以其獨特的窯變釉色著稱,其窯址位於今河南省禹州市。本拍品造型端莊古樸,釉色瑩潤典雅,營造出湖光山色的奇妙韻味,是不可多得的珍品。

    此盤可與1976年於河南省方城縣出土一批宋代鈞窯瓷器作比較,這批瓷器包括十件天青釉盤和十件豆青釉盤,其造型和尺寸與本器相近,見劉玉生和馬儼鵬,《河南省方城縣出土一批宋代瓷器》一文,著於《文物》,1983年,三期92-94頁。美國大都會藝術博物館亦藏一件Robert Lehman舊藏的北宋鈞窯盤可資對比,博物館編號1975.1.1650。
