My late brother-in-law bought this Chinese Urn through a reputable antique auction dealer - this urn once came with a catalog but after 20 years of moving around, the paperwork got shuffled and now lost. Please help me identify this with regard to time period and what it is called. I seemed to recall reference that it was from Ming dynasty or circa 800.

Measurement:
13" = height
7" = length
5" = width
4.5" = urn top section height

Condition/Specifications:
Material = crackled ceramics
Very good condition if from circa 800 - just one slight chip -
Crackled ceramics with carved dragons and upper base with clouds and bun feet

    i think that the 'ELLE' copyright pertains to the photo, not the piece.

    i noticed that the bisque in the 4th photo looked very modern too.

    Sorry for the confusion - the ELLE© or ElleC is actually my logo that I put on the pic as watermark that I did not use someone's else's photo. Nevertheless, I really appreciate the pouring input and your time.
