Lot Essay

A similar Longquan vase of lipped rim but with a more compressed body, included in the exhibition catalogue, Heavenly Blue: Southern Song Celadons, Tokyo, 2010, p. 43, fig. 13, measuring 21.7 cm. high. An example also of lipped rim but with a more curved silhouette is in The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, illustrated in Oriental Ceramics: the World’s Great Collections, vol. 12: Metropolitan Museum of Art, Tokyo, 1982, monochrome plates, measuring 21.3 cm. high, no. 52, . A pair of Longquan long-necked vases of similar form and proportion but with straight neck were excavated from a Southern Song hoard in Jinyucun, Suining city, Sichuan province, illustrated in Heavenly Blue: Southern Song Celadons, op. cit., p. 140, fig. 15-19. Two more examples with straight mouth are in the Tokugawa Art Museum and Museum of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka, illustrated in Heavenly Blue: Southern Song Celadons, op. cit., p. 42, figs. 11-12. Compare also three long-necked vases with lipped rims, possibly made at the Guan kilns in Hangzhou: one covered with crackled celadon glaze in the British Museum, London, illustrated in Asahi Shimbun, Song Ceramics, Tokyo, 1999, p. 100, no. 63; two covered with crackled yellowish glaze, known as beishoku celadon, illustrated in Heavenly Blue: Southern Song Celadons, op. cit., p. 82-83, igs. 58-59.
