jar N' jade



oil on canvas, 11*14
This jar looks like Junyao of Song Dynasty, but not. Jun yao is made in northern China during the Song and Yuan Dynasties. It is one of the five famous kilns of the Song. Jun porcelain known to the world, is a northern celadon system. Founded in the Tang and prospered in Song Dynasty, later ages have imitated.
This type of jade is called "Fei Chui", which means the red-yellow and green color. Fei is the red or yellow parts, and Chui is the green parts, if any jade has both colors, it could be valuable one. SO, mine is not bad huh~?
