Song Dynasty Ewer
This is a beautiful Song Dynasty ewer. It is currently on sale on ebay: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rare-Chinese-Ewer-Song-Dynasty-Original-Antique-Pottery-/223420143126
On the body of the ewer, there are perfect embossed lotus flowers. They are very intricate and detailed.
Even the handle has lines on it.
This ewer probably was made on the 12th century. It is from the Song Dynasty era.
This ewer probably from the Southern Song dynasty. Although I am not sure about which exact province or kiln that produced this.
Here are the measurement of the ewer. It is a small ewer. Probably for drinking tea?
And this is the base look of the ewer.
I also love the lotus petals drawn at the neck and the bottom of the ewer.
I also like the colour of the ewer! It is olive colour! I didn’t know the Chinese fancy this kind of colour!
