Why this is a
Masterpiece

This well-potted bottle is a very early example of Chinese ceramic to be decorated with polychrome enamels. It is rare to have the enamels survive in such good condition.

History of the Object
The Cizhou kilns of North China were the first to use overglaze polychrome enamels. These wares were treasured by Japanese tea masters and would sometimes be re-enameled if the decoration wore away.
