NEOLITHIC PERIOD, MAJIAYAO CULTURE, BANSHAN TYPE, MID 3RD MILLENNIUM BC
A fine large example with very good original intact decorations. Most you encounter have old repairs and washed out pigments.
A dandy very well rounded example of Japanese Kutani, circa 1900 to 1915. This particular type of pattern onto porcelain evolved from the earliest examples originally made from pottery. The major change was the additional profusion of decorations and the addition of human figures.
An unusual and very fine Wanli basin measuring 15 inches in diameter. Large bowls from this period are quite rare and don't turn up often in Chinese and Japanese antique auctions.
