Subject:Libation cup
Posted By: Eugenio Mon, Sep 25, 2017 IP:

Hi!, I want your opinion about this libation cup.
Dynasty if possible, and what are the yellow marks on the jade.

I'm not sure about your call of "libation cup", but I haven't seen it all. The basic lines of the body of your piece do remind me of a brush-washer I have, probably Chinese Yixing ware, three tiger masks on the shoulder, one with a nose chip repaired, circa 1900 or more recent, diameter about four inches.

If it's anything else, I'd think Japanese tokoname pottery, but I don't recall anything similar from there in my piece's configuration or yours.

Best regards,

Bill H.

Thanks Bill, I agree with a brush washer.
It does nos seem to be ceramic , but may be.
I'll post more pics on monday.

Kind regards
