Subject:Ge-type cong vase - when do you think it was made?
Posted By: MJ Tue, Nov 14, 2017 IP: 2.96.103.45

Ge-type cong vase - when do you think it was made? It’s 9” tall

As you can see it has lots of glaze blistering from wear, multiple layer crackle glaze, formed in porcelain in two halves with an added one piece mouth and very thinly potted, typical ink blackened unglazed foot and shaped to be put in a possible stand, heavy inside patina.

Dear MJ

Not sure what you mean by "typically ink blackened," I have never heard of such a practice. To me it just looks like artificial dirt, a sign of modern manufacture. The suspicious looking extra dirt on the inside just confirms this view.

Kind regards

J.Lim, I’ve see you post several comments on this forum, and to be honest you come across very arrogant and you think you know it all. If you find my opinion of you offensive, I apologise, but just take into consideration the amount of ego you’ve subjected on others throughout this forum. There is a singular person on the planet who is an expert in the entirety of Asian history, so pipe down.

Ironically, you’ve pointed out the least suspicious aspects of this vase, from previous discussions with people I’ve shown it to. This vase has physically been in the hands of two famous Antiques Roadshow experts and one said to take it for TL testing.

Traditional crackleware were commonly rubbed in ink (also other materials) in the cooling process, resulting in the cracks taking on a dark colour. Do some research! J.Lim I’m going to ignore your views from now on, as you only seem to comment with a negative vibe.

To others, please feel free to carry on commenting.

Dear MJ

My apologies, I just now read a passage in Allen's second book (p206) describing a practice of adding black lacquer to the bottom of certain Guangxu-Xuantong era vases.

Clearly I should defer to others to comment on this piece.

Kind regards
J.Lim
