CHINESE JADESTONE VESSELS OF YUAN DYNASTY

Yuan Dynasty (c. 1260-1368 ) - In 1260 Kublai Khan succeeded to the throne of the Mongol rule, and in 1271 he proclaimed this dynastic rule the Yuan. By 1279 the Yuan had unified the whole of China, including present day Xinjiang, Yunnan, and Tibet. The arts of this period are a revision of ancient styles, particularly that of the Tang Dynasty. The forms are traditionally Chinese but are more extravagant in decoration. One technique not borrowed from previous eras was the famous Underglazed Blue porcelain, also known as Blue and White Ware, which was developed during the Yuan.

Historical Value - Antiques bring the standards of couture into the home. Antiquities are works of art or utilitarian objects from ancient times, which have normally been excavated from tombs or historical sites. The huge worldwide demand for these ancient and often beautiful pieces has led to a critical shortage and therefore prices have soared to an unprecedented higher level.
