A JUNYAO DISH, SONG DYNASTY
China, 12th-13th century. Finely potted with shallow sides and a carefully cut foot, with a pale bluish-lavender glaze draining to a mushroom tone around the extremities, the well with a purple splash.

Provenance: Collection Friedrich Otto Hasse (1886-1964), Bremen, Germany. Thence by decent. See image of the collector’s cabinet, on the right side of the top shelf.
Condition: Superb condition with some wear overall, and a bit more to the well, in general as expected on a piece of this age. The crackles of the glaze are from firing. Not even the tiniest chip or any other damage whatsoever!

Weight: 195.7 grams.
Dimensions: Diameter 12.4 cm.

Compare with a similar but a bit smaller dish, sold by Sotheby’s Hong Kong, in ‘Contemporary Literati: Curiosity’ on April 5th, 2015, lot 2833. A similar dish is also illustrated in Robert Schmidt, Chinesische Keramik von der Han-Zeit bis zum XIX. Jahrhundert, Frankfurt am. Main, 1924, pl. 47f, and a slightly larger dish is included in Mayuyama, Seventy Years, vol. I, Mayuyama & Co., Ltd., Tokyo, 1976, pl. 403.

The industrialist Friedrich Otto Hasse was considered a knowledgeable art collector in his time. He owned paintings by artists of his generation such as Kokoschka, Braque, Ensor, Vlaminck and others. He also participated in the 1920s trend of collecting Chinese art. A photograph from around 1980 shows a part of his collection, approximately 50 ceramics and bronzes in a glass cabinet (see detail picture online). One of the main subjects of the collection was Chinese ceramics from the Song to Ming dynasties. He acquired these pieces, as documented by extant invoices, at Hugo Meyl in 1924 and at the Cassirer & Helbing auctions in Berlin. The documents suggest that his main period of collecting was between 1924 and 1929.
