Ref No.OR1111251

Recently acquired from the life time collection of PHDS Wikramaratna who was born in Ceylon in 1916 and later moved to London. During his life he built up an extensive collection of Far-Eastern, and mainly Chinese, ceramics, although by no means limited in scope. As a member of the Oriental Ceramic Society he obviously had a fascination with early forms and glazes and had a wonderful eye choosing carefully pieces which had a story to tell. Over the years, PH gave many fine pieces to museums; they can be seen at the British Museum, Victoria and Albert, Ashmolean and Fitzwilliam. He died at the end of 2010 and we have been very fortunate in acquiring more than 150 examples from this choice collection. This is a rare opportunity both for the novice collector and the more experienced buyer to acquire fresh to market and choice examples.

We have done our best to identify pieces where possible but suggest that interested buyers view our supporting photographs and send us any questions they may have.

Museum quality rare ancient Oriental, possibly Chinese unglazed grey earthenware jar with geometric designs stamped in relief around the body. The rounded jar has a folded back rim and a rounded base with the decoration also applied to the base. The pot has a matt grey finish and was originally acquired through Christies in London. It has a similar style to pieces originating from the Chinese Zhou Dynasty although is typically not marked.
