Lot details

China, 960-1127. Crisply and delicately potted with steep rounded sides rising to an everted rim, the interior neatly incised to depict a pair of boys holding scrolling leafy stems with large flower heads, covered overall in a deep and unctuous olive-green glaze.

Provenance: Jung’s, Inc., Wilmington, Delaware, USA, 6 May 1995. Lawrence H. Dunbar, Jr. (d. 2008), Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, USA, acquired from the above and thence by descent within the family.

A copy of the original invoice from Jung’s, Inc., dated 6 May 1995, stating a purchase price of USD 795 for the present lot, accompanies this lot. Jung’s, Inc. was an art and antiques dealership founded by Shee Lup Jung (1922-2015). Mr. Jung received his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Pennsylvania in 1951, when he was employed as a research chemist for DuPont. Inspired by his wife Mary’s passion for the arts, Mr. Jung slowly and methodically studied ancient glazes and ceramics, including their chemical and mineral aspects, acquiring a multitude of study pieces for the family’s collection. In 1975, he started Jung’s, Inc. in a historic location in central Wilmington, Delaware, as a museum-like gallery with an impressive selection of ceramics, open by appointment only and selling mostly to knowledgeable and scholarly collectors much like Jung himself.
