NORTHERN SONG-JIN DYNASTY (960-1234)
The high-shouldered tapering body is painted in matte russet brown with two long-tailed birds with spread wings swooping down from the shoulder in contrast to the lustrous blackish glaze which also covers the interior where it thins to a brownish colour, the neatly cut, wide mouth is applied with a rope-twist loop handle, the interior of the foot is similarly glazed and the bottom of the foot unglazed to show the fine pale buff stoneware body.
