    why hello

    this was a spur of the moment ebay buy it now type, was £20 plus postage so might only be worth that, but who doesnt like a parcel ?

    was sold as jun ware, which looks right, but wondering if the mark states that, or elaborates with a maker ?

    i like the fact its not trying to be old

    its the most perfect glaze ive ever seen, absolutely perfect, and in all seems very well made

    the glaze is like satin

    8 inches so not a bad size, with zero damage

    any help or comments appreciated

    It is gorgeous, I always love this style.
    I don't think it is Jun ware, probably studio as you thought. But let's wait for the others.
    It looks like the glaze finishes in a straight line on the stand ring, which I have never seen on Jun. I don't think I have ever seen marked Jun, which doesn't mean there is none, but the script looks later to me.

    That said, you did well.:) It is a bargain, and a very beautiful vase.:happy:

    thanks my wonderful friend

    "It looks like the glaze finishes in a straight line on the stand ring,"

    i noticed that as well, thought it might be a good indicator of quality

    i love it, might even be a keeper ;)

    If I had to guess, I would say a modern piece of Sang de boeuf?

    It is generally associated with Qing dynasty and later, so later than Jun ware.
    I would be tempted to keep it too.;):)

    Nice, and yes very modern and seems of high quality, not likely to be one of the production line factories in Jingdezhen. Looks like a high fired copper glaze, the outcome is very variable on these so each one will be unique. Script is 中华窑 - Google got it right for once! It's Zhōnghuá yáo in Westernised translation and:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zhonghua

    So they are relating their work to cultural history.

    I couldn't part with it. That glaze is phenomenal! I could stare at it for hours! In this case, who cares if it is modern or ancient -- it's a beauty all of its own.

    One clue that this is a modern vase is the use of simplified characters, which have been used in China only since the 1950s. The second and third of the three characters highlighted above, 中华窑, look very different in traditional characters: 中華窯. Also note that along with simplified characters, the Chinese government has changed the direction of writing; while Chinese was traditionally written from right to left, the writing in mainland China is now generally written from left to right, similar to the writing in the U.S., Europe, etc. If you happen to find a mark or inscription on something Chinese and it is written from left to right, you can be sure that it is not antique.
