Antique Chinese Hare's Fur Tea Bowl
Click on image above for more views

.

This is a beautifully glazed Song Dynasty (960-1279 AD) Hare's Fur tea bowl that we have had for a few years. I'm afraid that I don't know how to describe it properly and hope that the photos will suffice. If the bowl looks out-of-round or somewhat askew, it is. The 'kiln god' had its way with the bowl and added character to a bowl with a wonderful glaze. I'm sorry that the photos don't show the glaze with its subtleties as well as they might, but if interested, I will try to get some better ones. The piece measures about 2 3/4" at the highest rim point by about 5" at the widest point. Somewhere along the line, it appears there has been a rim restoration, but it isn't new and it is hard to tell the extent of it. Otherwise, it is in very nice condition......$250.00
