Katalognummer: CA0420-295 A LARGE LONGQUAN CELADON VESSEL, FANG LEI, MING DYNASTY China, 1368-1644. Sturdily potted in the form of an archaic bronze wine vessel and covered overall by an unctuous sea-green glaze with intentional crackling throughout. Provenance: The Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art deaccession. Minuscule matching inventory numbers “88.61.8” painted to lid and base. Old paper labels reading “WARE IN TAOT’IEH MOTIF. LATE MING DYNASTY, 1600 AD”. The museum is located at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Its collection includes more than 35,000 works of art and was designed by architect I.M. Pei. Established in 1953, it is named after its primary benefactor, Herbert Fisk Johnson, head of S.C. Johnson & Sons.

Weight: 5.9 kg Dimensions: 42.8 cm Celadon vessels of archaic form were made in the Longquan and Guan kilns from as early as the Southern Song dynasty and continued throughout the Ming dynasty. For example, fragments of such vessels were recovered from the Laohudong kiln site, Hangzhou. Each side of the tapering vessel is divided into horizontal registers. The neck and lid with molded pairs of confronting birds in high relief, above a band at the shoulder with pairs of sun whorls flanking taotie mask on the two main sides and bovine-head ring handles on the narrow sides. The lower register with a pair of confronting birds centered by a flattened bovine-head motif. One main side with the typical loop handle for wine-pouring, bearing a carved lingzhi motif. All supported on a tall flared foot, the sides with their characteristic flanges. The domed pitched-roof cover is surmounted by a rectangular handle.
