Large Blue Red Pot

Post by UpNorth on December 8th 2014, 10:31 pm

Hi: This is another pot we've had for years but can't figure out who manufactured it.  It stands approximately 9.5 inches tall(24 cm) and is very heavy.  The glaze is an amazing blue and red, and what probably won't be evident, is that it is a crackle glaze.  It is unmarked.  The red glaze on the base, in particular, has developed a lustre.  It is reminiscent of Ben Owens Chinese Blue glazed pots though we're pretty certain it isn't.  Perhaps it's Chinese-in spots it looks like a peach bloom glaze.  We really don't know though and would appreciate any of your thoughts, opinions or guesses.

Thanks,
Darren

It's probably Chinese. If you search on "jun ware" and "junyao ware" you'll find lots of images of similar glazes. They have been making it since the Song dynasty but you'd be best to consult an auctioneer or museum specialist to get an opinion on whether your pot was made a thousand years ago or last week. It appears to have some age to it, but my guess would be that it was within the past 100 years as it doesn't look to me like an early shape. But I'm no expert.

I dont know. I'd be surprised if it was oriental with a glazed base. A lot of studio potters have been copying this sort of glaze, but without a mark it's difficult to know who it's by unless you're familiar with that particular potter's work. Maybe try the Studio Potters Collectirs group on facebook.

The shape is similar to many early 20c British art potteries, Ruskin, Brannam etc.
Denby in particular did many handled vases in this shape, but not in those colours.

Looks more heavily potted than most Chinese ware but the base looks like it could be to me

Thanks for all your thoughts so far. As an aside, I did a search of Ruskin shapes, prompted by 'denbydump' and was able to fortuitously identify a vase we have(as early Ruskin) that we'd given up hope of identifying.
Thanks again!

Oh, well done, I have my uses!
You must post a pic in the Ruskin thread.
