H 15 3/4 in.This was a rare Binhu of the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368). It was depicted with the story of the Emperor of Zhou Dynasty and a famous scholar called Jiang Tai-kung. Jiang was a smart person but was not able to serve his country until he met Emperor of Zhou when he was 80 years old. Jiang later became the Prime Minister to help Zhou Emperor manage his country. The base has the Mongolian Phagspa inscriptions meaning Made in Zhizheng Period (between 1341-1368). It is very rare to find a dated Yuan porcelain. Only the Percival collection in UK has another Yuan porcelain dated Zhizheng 11th year. The Mongolian language Phagspa was a language which was lost after these years.文王将要出去打猎,叫太史编替他卜了一课,太史编看了龟兆,唱道:到渭水北边去打猎,将会有很大的收获。不是螭也不是龙,不是老虎不是熊; 兆得个贤人是公侯,上天赐你的好帮手。文王便坐了猎车,驾了猎马,到渭水北岸去打猎,终于见到了姜太公,太公正坐在一束茅草上,(安安静静地在那里)钓鱼。周西伯出去打猎,果然在渭水北岸遇见了太公,和他交谈,大为高兴,说道:“记得先前我那去世的父亲太公常向我说:‘不久准会有圣人到我们这里来,那时我们周民族就将要兴盛发达了。’你可真就是这样的人吗?我家太公盼望你已经很久了!”所以就叫他做“太公望”。用车子把他载了一同回京城去,回去就拜他做了国师
