March 2022 Asia Week
Tang - Yuan Dynasty
Chinese Ceramics

    Zetterquist galleries was founded in 1992 by Eric J. Zetterquist to present the finest of Asian ceramics throughout the ages.  Our clients include major museums and the most discerning collectors of Asian ceramics from around the world.

    While most Asian antiquities galleries choose one country and show several different media from that country, Zetterquist chose to show one medium, ceramics, but cover all of East Asia. The flow of materials with stylistic and technical influences around the region over the past 2,000 years tells a fascinating story that gets more exciting with time.  

    Our March 2022 exhibition will feature Chinese Ceramics from the Tang through Yuan Dynasties.  It features exquisite examples of celadons from Yaozhou, Yue, and Longquan kilns.  There is an exquisitely carved Yaozhou peony bowl from a New York collection and an heirloom quality Longquan celadon vase from an old English collection.

    There are persimmon glazed bowls from Yaozhou and Jian-yao kilns, as well as a tortoiseshell censer from Jizhou.

   Of the many white wares in the exhibition, there is a carved Dingyao twin fish bowl with Japanese provenance and a Tang Dynasty Xing-yao bottle vase from a distinguished New York private collection and provenance from Robert Hatfield Ellsworth and AW Bahr Collections.  

    Two Song Dynasty Hutien-type Qingbai bowls, one with original silver foil rim remnants, and the other with carved cloud motif,  portray the refinement of this kiln's output.
