Subject:Please help - Celadon...or not
Posted By: Jack Wed, Mar 20, 2019 IP:

Hallo all.

I have a few pieces of Korean Celadon (though I would like confirmation of two of these if possible - see previous posting), but this item is probably not Korean and I should like to confirm it is Celadon.

This vase has a curious brown glaze around the neck which I've never seen before. It also has some text on the side. There are very faint marks on the base which I have enhanced to help make them readable.

If possible, I should be grateful if somebody could tell me:
1. what nationality is this Celadon vase?
2. what does the text says?
3. who/when was this made?

Thank you for any help you can offer.

Follow up...

I've looked at the brown material around the neck of this vase/bottle and it appears to be a sealant or some kind of stopper. I can probably remove it if I am careful.

So, presumably this bottle was filled with a liquid which is may be described by the text on the front.

Does this help with my questions below?

like Mikeoz said it's a chinese liqueur bottle, more precisely rice wine by the brand nu er hong, it also came with a red silk lace tied through the hoops, judging by the cork sealant yours is probably from the latter half of the last century, though i believe they are still being produced, i got one unopened from my grandfather's cellar dated from the 1970's, it's authentic celadon, the script is possibly related to the brand and/or the wine, but i don't know, hope this helps

Chinese liquor bottle. Red wax seal to preserve cork or other closure. Contemporary. Modern simplified characters.
