each exquisitely potted with a globular body rising from a short straight foot to a cylindrical neck and an everted rim, covered overall in an even unctuous pale grayish-blue glaze suffused with a fine network of dark and light crackles, the foot pierced to two sides, the footring applied with dark brown dressing, inscribed to the base with a six-character seal mark in underglaze blue
Both vases are in very good overall condition, one vase with minor associated pinpricks from the original crackling, including at the mouth rim and above the foot ring.
