It is rare to find a 'qingbai' cup of this form, its shape inspired by metal wares. Cups of this type are however, known, from the 'Yaozhou' kilns, such as the piece illustrated in Zhongguo taoci quanji, vol. 9, Shanghai, 2000, pl. 201, in the Capital Museum, Beijing; and another illustrated in Regina Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, vol. 1, London, 1994, pl. 405, or from the 'Ding' kilns, an example of which is also included in this catalogue.The dating of this lot is consistent with the results of a thermoluminescence test, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Lab D53, sample 479.
