    Jun brush-washer


    The shape of this brush-washer derives from silver ware. It has a side handle and flange. Although some scholars believe some very fine Jun wares were sent as tribute to the Northern Song court, most of the output from the Jun kilns appears to have been intended for non-imperial consumers and the ware was rarely exported.

    鈞釉筆洗


    此筆洗有單柄,飾折沿,造型源於銀器。儘管一些學者堅信品質上乘的鈞窯器物曾作為貢品進奉北宋宮廷,但絕大多數的鈞窯器物是為皇室以外的消費者生產的,並極少外銷。
