Chinese Blue & White Porcelain Glazed Yuan Dynasty Style Weights
These wonderful Chinese Blue and White Glazed Porcelain Yuan Dynasty Style Weights, circa 1920, each with distinctive shapes and Chinese characters using colours popularised during the Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368) work so very well as a collection. These weights would have been individually made and hand painted and would probably have been used as weaver’s weights or even for weighing down scrolls that were being drawn up or for using with completed scrolls that would be rolled open and weighted at either end for study and contemplation. The weights are slightly tapered and have a rounded top with a suspension hole. The weights are not marked and are in fair condition with making irregularities and commensurate with age and wear. The measurements vary and those stated are for the largest piece.
