Yuan Qing Bi water pot made at Jingdezhen at the start of the Yuan Dynasty.

Excellent thick glaze with a good bluey / green tinge.

The neck is enhanced with two Qi - hornless or young dragons - on opposite sides appearing to chase across the shoulder.

Square shapes are very difficult to pot and to apply a sloping a neck even more so. The pot shows tremendous skill

An excellent rare piece. A high status piece
