The collection of 116 Jun ware consists of outstanding examples from the Song, Jin and Yuan periods. It includes not only rare items but a broad selection of forms and their various respective shapes. A number of items in the collection are particularly noteworthy such as a blue-glazed basin with embossed design and inscribed with the number “1”; a rare porcelain pillow; and an elegant ewer that has been handed down for generations. These examples are representative of Jun ware and are a valuable resource for lovers of ceramics, and for professional researchers.
