A fine art reproduction of a vase from Song Dynasty (960-1279) by Ru Kiln/Ru ware
Ru ware, Ju ware, or “Ru official ware” (Chinese: 汝窯) is a famous and extremely rare type of Chinese pottery from the Song dynasty, produced for the imperial court for a brief period around 1100. Fewer than 100 complete pieces survive. On 3 October 2017, a Ru ware brush-washer dish, 13cm (5in) across, set a new record auction price for Chinese ceramics at Sotheby’s Hong Kong, fetching HK$ 294.3 million, nearly US$ 28 million.
This vase has a distinctive pale’duck-egg’ blue glaze with a subtle crackle all over the body. The imitation almost matches the originals. It is made exactly as the way Ru ware used to be made. The vase was placed on three small spurs or prongs for support to keep off the kiln stack surface which left little unglazed oval spots called “sesame seeds” on the underside.
