East Asia, China, Song Dynasty, ca. 960 to 1270 CE. A gorgeous glazed sky blue Southern Song Qingbai bowl. This item was made at the San Hu kilns in Jingdezhen, in southeastern China. This piece is high fired, with a clear, bell-like tone when tapped with a finger nail. Qingbai ware is arguably the first mass-produced type of porcelain, used most for burial wares and exports. The distinctive color of the glaze is a result of using pine wood as fuel in the kilns, creating a reducing atmosphere. Size: 5.7" W x 1.8" H (14.5 cm x 4.6 cm)
