雙耳尖底瓶

此雙耳瓶呈紡錘型。收縮的頸部垂至微圓的腹間。瓶體下部錐狀,柱形瓶頸上方略凸,瓶口狹窄平整。中部雙耳對稱,表面有深度繩形等距斜紋,可能是用陶製印板拍打而成,也可能由帶凹溝紋或包覆繩索的木筒滾出。…

梅瓶

對元代瓷器來說,這件梅瓶提供了罕見,有意義的見證。事實上,世上僅有另外兩件與其相仿,一件存於北京故宮博物院,一件在揚州博物館。瓶體輪廓雅典,肩部寬大,底足狹小,外表一色,忠實於來自宋代的審美標準。腹部白釉飛龍精雕細刻,小頭,細嘴,長頸彎曲,背上有刺,足為三爪,通體深色鈷藍,皆屬元代特點。大概供官方使用。…

蓮花盞

這件帶波折的盞,柱狀高足,材質完美使優雅的造型顯得更加姣好。從盞的形態,可看出隨著佛教進入中國,異國的影響再次興起,例如象徵純潔的蓮花,由之衍生出眾多的圖飾和形狀。此盞作蓮瓣樣式,高圈足外撇,源自唐代仿採中亞金銀器的造型。盞下用毛筆紅漆行書落款:杭州,丙午年。…

雙鳳嘴注壺

此壺大肚球狀,頸部帶有節,青綠釉下,通體剔花。這種宋初耀州窯青瓷特有的剔花,一般很深。最深者可達五毫米,釉在圖案邊緣凝集,將形成的陰暗之處與浮凸的光亮部分化為巧妙的對比。…
