Jun bowl made towards the end of the Southern Song Dynasty. Excellent deep thick glaze that pales away from the rim and falls short of the foot rim.

The glaze is pale blue with a slight purple hue in some areas. to the inside the side has a small splash but this is not a purple splash but a slightly lighter blue in colour.

To the underside in the foot rim there is evidence of a Chinese character mark.

The body may have been slightly wet on firing so there is a firing flaw in the foot rim itself which is common thing and this would also account for a slight thickening in one area of the glaze to the out side

the potting is good although there is a slight in-turn to the rim where it may have been slightly knocked when removed from the wheel.

Overall though a very good piece
