      Wow, What a score. These were cheap as chips a few years ago, and I still do not think they are appreciated enough. I have a ton myself, so they look real good to me. Is that a Yuan or Ming Cizou ? Maybe a shipwreck, or from some of those giant kilns they dig up. I am not sure if you can import these into America anymore, at least easily. Nice score.

      Thank you. Yes, the cizhou ware bowl is from Yuan Dynasty— and the blue small bowl is indeed a kitchen ware Qing Dynasty C. 1600s.

      I don’t know about the rest of the bowls, but they have similarities such as the I guess firing flaws in the middle or might be a spur marks.

      The big bowl next to cizhou ware intrigued me a little bit,.. it has cross spur mark on the base as well. First time seeing a cross spur mark on the base.

      i purchased two of these bowls recently as study subjects.
      i am curious if they are replicas of originals.

      very nice yuan bowl, the kitchen plate is known, is not from 1600 , but the transitional period
      this is not shipwreck porcelain , otherwise the glazing would be bleached by the salt of the sea

      For $33 these are fine, but they are definitely not what they claim to be for the following reasons:
      1. The spur marks are sandy and indistinguishable, when they should be clear and comes in 5 or 7.
      2. The glaze is too shiny.
      3. The foot is wrong (too high in many examples) and the "dirt" too artificial.
