3 BILLION DOLLAR RU WARE SALE
My name is Joseph Sharon. I have collected a hoard over 300 pieces of Northern Song
Dynasty Imperial Ru ware from Emperor Huizong's collection. This hoard of Ru Ware is the most important find of Chinese Arts in the 21st Century. Ru Wares are the rarest, most important and
historically significant ceramics in China’s History; the Imperial wares are the first wares made exclusively for the Emperor and his court. I have offered to donate Ru wares to many museums and
universities and I have been shunned away. They are totally afraid to revise history because of all the money that Sotheby’s, Christies and Bonham’s are making from the established historical
narrative. This confirms how entrenched their corruption is. In Hong Kong during April of 2012 Sotheby’s sold a flawed merchant ware Ru kiln brush washer for twenty seven million dollars, then again
in October of 2017 they doubled down and sold another Ru Kiln flawed merchant ware brush washer for thirty eight million dollars,Christies has sold a Ru Ware Tea Bowl in Hong Kong Nov.26, 2018 for Appox. $8,200,000. they should return the money because my Imperial Ru Ware hoard proves that these pieces are not Imperial Ru ware but rather flawed
merchant ware. Also in Hong Kong during April 2015 Sotheby’s sold a Guan Vase for 14 million dollars. I have many much finer marked Imperial Guan ware Vases in my collection. China has opened up and
many fine pieces have reached the market place. Historic pieces like my Ru ware collection should lead to revision of the history books. No one likes being discriminated against and this is what
started me off on a task to expose the major auction houses and start this site. I am offering many fine pieces for sale that are priced fairly and honestly. The scholars and major museums are
avoiding my hoard of Ru Wares. This proves that they are all puppets of the corrupt auction houses and their crony dealer network. I purchased my collection from sources in China. Many of my pieces are much finer than what the main auction houses offer in their auctions. This is one of the reasons why
they refused to even allow me to sell, because they sold so many junk pieces and since China has opened up many finer pieces have reached the market place. Not all Chinese people can partake in
auctions in China. They are excluded if they are not part of the party. Many of the pieces that I purchased have been hidden away and passed down by those who were in power centuries ago. Many
Chinese live in fear of being caught with their collections. I started my website to expose all of the corruption within the auction houses and their collusion with museums. They are cheating
collectors by not offering the finest pieces available and continuing their discriminatory policies. Read the home page and
introduction page and look carefully at the photos of my collection. This is the biggest scandal ever perpetrated against American collectors and collectors around the world and this Ru Ware hoard
proves these allegations are true. Also I present comparisons between thirteen of the finest wares Sotheby's sold from 2010 to 2116 and fine pieces from my collection so that you can see the
difference. Everything on this site is for sale email me an just make an offer. (Read and scroll the entire page). All photos can be enlarged - just click on them. Also, to see other pieces go to the
top of this page and click on the tabs.
Palace Museum Agreed My Ru-Ware is from the Song Dynasty
After several emails and photos back and forth trying to donate my Song Dynasty
Ru-Ware. The Palace Museum was afraid to change their direction of not showing the public the real Imperial northern Song Dynasty Imperial Ru ware to the world that was hoarded away. This is just
another cover-up that the Auction houses and Museums are afraid to show because of all the money involved. What you see in Museums is not the finest pieces that the Chinese produced. Below is the
last email they sent me and the last email I sent them. And they clearly agreed they are from the Song Dynasty.

I donated five Ru Ware pieces to a small Museum in Perry, Iowa.
(The Forest Park Museum)
they're the first museum in the world to have real Official Imperial Northern Song Dynasty Ru Ware in their collection. They wrote below
on the case!
Ru Kiln Chinese Ceramics
The beautiful pieces in this case are from ru kiln officially sponsored by the Chinese Northern Song Dynasty ruler Emperor Huizong
between 1100 and 1127 AD. The emperor was an artist who sponsored art competitions, amassed hugh stores of beautiful works of art, and even developed his own Calligraphy style. His reign was one of
the great cultural golden ages in Chinese and World History.
The emperor valued simplicity in
art forms, especially the beautiful pottery produced at five imperial kilns. Three main categories were developed, merchant wares, tribute pieces and the very simple pieces sponsored by the Emperor
himself. Merchant wares were used by the population and were utilitarian with frequent flaws while tribute pieces were trimmed with bands and given to the court as gifts.
Huizong disliked the ornate tribute pieces and ordered simple pieces with no banding. These pieces were fired with crushed agate glaze
that gave them a unique look. The imperial mark was stamped on them as part of the process. Only small number of these pieces were produced relative to the other types and they remain highly sought
Unfortunately for the Emperor, his cultural obsessions led to the
decay in his army. When the Jin Dynasty to the north attacked he was overthrown and spent the remainder of his life captive. Pieces like these became his lasting legacy.
The five pieces here include a merchant ware brush washer, a tribute brush washer, tribute vase and two imperial vases. Noted collector
Joseph Sharon collected them from sources inside China.
ABOVE ARE PHOTOS OF THE 1ST AND 2ND COMMISSIONED IMPERIAL RU WARE AND IMPERIAL TRIBUTE RU WARES
IMPERIAL RU WARE THE EMPEROR HUIZONG OF SONG, COMMISSIONED AND COLLECTED DURING THE NORTHERN SONG
I've collected a hoard over 300 pieces of Imperial Ru/Ju wares from Emperor Huizong's Collection and these wares were hidden away and the Qianlong Emperor
did not have the ability to collect such pieces, the pieces he collected were from the wealthy merchant class pieces. The merchant Wares that were collected by the Qianlong Emperor during the Qing
Dynasty are all that was known to exist until China has opened up to the world and many fine pieces and collections that were hidden have reached the market place. I realize this will clear up some
of the questions about the Ru/Ju Kiln wares and Emperor Huizong reign. For many years everyone had to rely on the pieces that are from the Qianlong Emperor's collection, those pieces are very nice
but they are not the real Imperial Ru/Ju wares that Emperor Huizong commissioned the Ru/Ju Kiln to produce for himself and his court. The Ru/Ju Kiln produced three types of wares. The first wares
were being sold to the wealthy merchant class and these wares didn't have the fire gilded bands and didn't have crushed agate stone in the glaze. Any wares that had sever firing flaws would be
destoryed, firing flawed wares were sold to the population at a much cheaper price. The Finest wares they were producing were the tribute wares that were given to the Emperor and his court as
All tribute wares have the fire gilded over copper bands that are around the rim and base and sometimes only the rim. This started some other Kilns to trim
there Tribute wares with gilded bands also. These bands have extensive layered cuprite and malachite corrosion that only occurs in nature and can't be faked. (From
the book Copper and bronze in art by David Scott The existence of malachite formation over a layer of cuprite is supported by analytical and metallographic studies is a good indication of the
authenticity of an artifact.) This is more reliable than a TL test. These tribute wares have several colors and many forms and didn't have crushed agate in the
glaze, they all were glazed on the foot rings and have spur marks. One of the tribute pieces is marked Feng Wang a tribute to the Emperor, these are not the commissioned pieces because the Emperor
would never give tribute to himself. The second wares they produced were the Official Imperial wares that Emperor Huizong commissioned the Ru/Ju Kiln to produce for him and his court, They produced
two types of the Official Imperial wares that were made for Emperor Huizong and his court. Emperor Huizong was unhappy with all the opulent tribute wares he was receiving from several kilns and also
the Ru/Ju Kiln.
These tribute wares were too flamboyant with the fire gilded bands and their opulent forms and colors. Emperor Huizong was an artist and a modest man and
he saw beauty in simplicity. Emperor Huizong had contact with the Korean Koryo Dynasty celadon wares because the color he chose is similar to the Koryo celadon wares. Emperor Huizong decided to
commission the Ru/Ju Kiln because they were producing the finest wares. The 1st commissioned Imperial wares are very special because they were the first wares ever commissioned by an Emperor and made
exclusively for the Emperor and his court. There was two separate groups of Imperial commissioned Ru wares by Emperor Huizong, the first group of wares are very modest and refined, the second group
the wares are very elegant and luxurious. Both groups of wares you can see traces of agate flakes in the glaze with a 20x power loupe under the right lighting. The first Imperial wares are not
opulent like the merchant or tribute wares they are very understated and have modest and refined forms with only one color Celadon and they have some texture.
They used crushed agate stone that was put into their glaze mix. Agate melts at 2912 degrees F and the Song dynasty kilns temperature only reached 1250
degrees F at best, so this is a fallacy that the crushed agate melted in the glaze, also it would be very difficult to crush agate into a complete powder this is why you can clearly see traces of the
agate stone in the glaze using a 20x loupe or better. The Prototypes the foot rings were glazed and you could see spur marks, Emperor Huizong didn't like the spur marks and he requested they remove
them so they stopped glazing the foot rings and the final version was fired flat in the kiln. Many vases have marks scratched on the bases like Feng Hua and also other marks. All of the first
commissioned Imperial wares have cracked ice crackle in the glaze and all the 1st commissioned wares have similar crackle. Emperor Huizong had a vision to produce wares that would be very
understated, refined, and modest and look like they were formed from jade stone, he wanted to produce wares similar to wares from the past. It didn't matter if a piece had flaws, because each piece
has its own character. Any flawed pieces would be distributed to the court and no pieces were sold to anyone. Only the Emperor and his court owned these wares.
The Emperor was a modest man and saw each piece as individual piece, and even if they had flaws, he saw beauty. Almost like human beings with all the
flaws, they’re beautiful. It is very apparent that Emperor Huizong worked very closely with the Ru/Ju Kiln to develop these first commissioned Imperial wares. The Ru/Ju Kiln certainly fulfilled
Emperor Huizong's vision and produced these wonderful modest wares exclusively for him and his Court. The wares are very important because they are the first wares ever commissioned by any Emperor in
China's history. After a while many of Emperor Huizong's court wanted finer wares from the Ru Kiln, so the Emperor ordered the Ru kiln to produce the second Official Imperial wares. The second
Official Imperial wares Huizong commissioned are not modest they are very elegant, luxurious and beautiful with very rich glaze. Both the first and second imperial wares have crushed agate in the
glaze and both are not glazed on the foot rings they were fired flat in the kiln. The second commissioned official Imperial wares generally have no crackle in the glaze except for the wares with
Gilded silver bands they have a few lines and all 2nd commissioned wares are not marked at all.
The Emperor wanted the 2nd commissioned wares to be the best wares possible for his court, he wanted the Ru Kiln to produce the finest celadon wares ever
produced, more refined wares than the Korean Koyro Dynasty wares. I have attached photos of two Vases of the 2nd commissioned Ru wares that have fire gilded bands that clearly show the cuprite and
malachite corrosion, this proves these wares are ancient. Also I have attached photos that you can see on the first Imperial Ru ware Vase they didn't crush the agate stone enough, the glaze has tiny
holes caused by the agate and there is tiny drip of glaze attached to foot ring which you can clearly see agate chips in the drip of glaze. All of this is clear conclusive evidence these are the
first and second Official Imperial Ru ware that Emperor Huizong developed and commissioned the Ru/Ju Kiln to produce for him and his court
Sotheby's sold in Hong Kong
Sotheby's sold these two Flawed Northern Song Dynasty Ru Ware brush washers in Hong Kong. Now
Christie's has sold a flawed Ru Ware Tea Bowl in Hong Kong.
Sotheby's sold these two Flawed Merchant Class Ru-ware brush washers below in Hong Kong in April 12, 2012 for approx. $27,000,000.00 then
sold in Hong Kong October 3, 2017 for approx. $38,000,000.00 look them up. Now Christies has sold in November 26, 2018 Hong Kong a flawed merchant class Ru-Ware Tea Bowl for approx. $8,200,000
Look them up all three of these pieces are flawed merchant class pieces not a Imperial pieces they have major firing flaws they would have been
sold to the population at a cheap price not the court. They cheated and swindled the collectors that purchased this junk. They should return the money.
They can contact me anytime they wish. It’s fine to be
skeptical, but to criticize and pass judgement without any explanation why something is not what it is presented to be just shows a lack of knowledge about the subject. I don’t hide behind a screen
name I put everything on the table. I don’t like bashing Museums, Auction Houses or the crony dealers but the corruption is too deep, they control the narrative and market place . Since China has
open up and many very fine pieces that have been hidden away have reach the market place. The cabal that is controlling the market are afraid of the criticism and the law suits that may come to bare
from collectors that have purchased pieces that have been totally misrepresented by them. Often stated that there is less than 100 pieces of Ru ware that survived, nothing could be further from the
truth. The pieces they have catalogued are not Imperial pieces they are flawed merchant wares. Merchant wares were sold to the wealthy merchants only the Imperial wares are rare. They did not use
crushed agate in any merchant wares, they say that the agate melted in the glaze because it can’t been seen in their recorded wares. Ancient writings about Ru ware state crushed agate was used in the
glaze . Only Imperial Ru ware has agate in the glaze and it can be seen with a 20x loupe. My collection proves that everything written about Ru wares needs to be revised. I welcome any expert in Ru
ware to sit down with me an examine my collection, so far no one has come forward. They could care less about the historic significance of the most important wares China ever produced Ru Ware. The
microscopic photos prove that my pieces are ancient wares, no one can reproduce the cup-rite and malachite corrosion that’s on the fire gilded bands. It is impossible to duplicate these wares the
materials, knowledge, skill, spirit required is completely lost in time. Any attempts to reproduce Ru ware would stick out like a sore thumb.
BELOW IS THE RU WARE SOTHEBY'S AND CHRISTIES SOLD IN THERE AUCTIONS, Not Imperial
These four masterpiece Ru Vases I offer to Sotheby's and they refused to allow me a first hand inspection. This is why I started this website. The first
photo is a sky blue Ru vase is marked Feng Wang and the mark says Tribute to the Emperor. This Vase has fire gilded over copper bands on the rim and base they have extensive cuprite and malachite
corrosion that only occurs in nature and can't be faked and this proves there age. The second photo is a first commissioned Official Imperial Ru Celadon Meiping Vase that is marked on the base Feng
Hua this means tribute to China. This Ru Vase was the first wares ever commissioned by the Emperor to be used by himself and his court in China's history. Only commissioned Official Imperial wares
used crushed agate stone in the glaze and this can be seen with a loupe, this proves that these are the first wares that the Emperor Huizong Commissioned for himself and his court. The third photo is
a Imperial Tribute Vase that doesn't have any crackle in the glaze, it has fire gilded bands that have been cleaned and still show traces of cuprite and malachite under a loupe. The forth photo is a
second commissioned Official Imperial Ru Vase that has fire gilded over silver band around the mouth, that shows black corrosion where the gild has worn away. This Vase has the crushed agate in the
glaze that can be seen with a loupe and this proves this vase is the second commissioned Official Imperial Ru ware. There is another Ru-piece without crackle in the Palace Museum and that piece
doesn't have the fire gilded bands. The Ru brush washer Sotheby's sold is a flawed merchant ware pieces because it has no fire gilded bands and has firing flaws and all wares that had flaws were sold
to the population. The second Ru brush washer Sotheby's sold is also a flawed piece it was over fired and has glaze flaws on the base. The auction houses cheat all collectors by not offering the best
pieces available to them and this just raises the price of all inferior pieces that are abundant. This also cheats the high end collector because they don't have the opportunity to purchase the
rarest and finest pieces in the world. Feel free to contact me about these spectacular pieces. (click the photo to enlarge)
Sotheby's sold this small Chenghua palace Bowl in Hong Kong october 8, 2014 for over $7,000,000. dollars. They should return the money because they keep
the finest pieces out of their auctions and they also refused to even examine my fabulous mark and period Chenghua Lion Jar with Buddhist symbols Check my Lion jar below

This masterpiece is the finest B/W Chenghua Jar ever published. This mark and period Chenghua Lion Jar with buddhist symbols is a very important and very
finely detailed piece. This Jar was offered to Sotheby's many years ago and they refused to even allow me a first hand inspection to offer it for sale. This is how they discriminate against
collectors, that didn't buy through their corrupt network of dealer and auction houses. This cheats all collectors to pay more for inferior pieces that are abundant and doesn't give the high end
collector the opportunity to purchase the rarest and finest pieces in the world. Feel free to contact me about this spectacular Jar. (click photo to enlarge)

mark and period Falangcai Vases Below.
These Exquisite Famille Rose Vases are very thinly potted, and they were decorated in the Forbidden City
in Beijing during the Yongzheng period 1723 to 1735. These vases were painted using Falangcai enamels and it is said that the Emperor himself oversaw the manufacture of these wares. These mirror
image vases are very delicate and decorated with branches, flowering prunus, and birds. On the reverse there is a inscribed poem with three seals. The Yongzheng mark on the base was added by the
Beijing decorators in blue enamel. The Birds on these vases are so finely done the feathers took well over a thousand tiny strokes using a single hair brush to
create. The quality of these wares are magnificent, check your auction catalogs, books, museums, and see if you find a better pair of Yongzheng
falangcai vases published anywhere. This pair of Vases measure approx. 8 3/8 inches Tall. The auction
houses cheat all collectors by not offering the best pieces available to them and this just raises the price of all inferior pieces that are abundant. This also cheats the high end collector
because they don't have the opportunity to purchase the rarest and finest pieces in the world. Feel free to contact me about these Vases. (Click photo to enlarge)

Sothebys sold this flawed Guan vase for approx. $14,000,000 in Hong Kong in April 7, 2015. This vase has holes in the glaze in several areas. The form is
not well balanced it looks like a beginner potter formed this piece. It is not an official court piece and it came from the same collection that they sold a Ru Ware flawed merchant pieces for
$27,000,000 in Hong Kong they should return the money for both pieces. They cheated and swindled the Chinese collectors that purchased them.
This Beautiful masterpiece Guan Yao S. Song Dynasty Vase above has a thick bluish green glaze that was achieved by putting on several applications of glaze
and successive firings. This thick coat of glaze rounded off any sharp angles of the form. The form is well balanced clearly done by a master potter. The body is very finely potted and thinner than
the glaze, you can see this on the base were the glaze is pooling. The Vase has the offical goverment mark on the base. Xiu Nei Si apparently refers to the Department of palace supply, under
the relocated Northern Song Administration, which was driven south to Hangzhou in 1127A.D. The auction houses cheat all collectors by not offering the best pieces available to them and this just
raises the prices of all inferior pieces that are abundant. This also cheats the high end collector because they don't have the opportunity to purchase the rarest and finest pieces in the

Sotheby's sold this unmarked Chenghua Vase 10/8/2010 in Hong Kong for $5,572,355. This vase was not marked an was attributed to Chenghua
reign. They should return the money because they keep the finest pieces out of their auctions and they also refused to even examine my fabulous mark and period Chenghua pieces.
This masterpiece is a beautiful Imperial Ming Dynasty blue and white 15th C. marked and period of Chenghua windswept figure guan jar. The Chenghua period was from 1465 - 1487 There are four panels on the jar, first is the lotus leaves, the next panel is water with horses flying in the clouds above, the main panel is a figure story with a six character Chenghua mark, and the base has a water design. You can see the windswept look that the artist created on the figures robes seen blowing in the wind. You also can see clearly how the Jar was luted together when it was created. The bottom of the Jar is mottled and looks some what burnt. The Jar measures approx. 11 3/4 inches tall. These Chenghua blue and white wares are the most sought after blue and white wares that China ever produced. The beautiful cobalt used during this period makes it very easy to distinguish from other periods of Chinese blue and white wares. They have a distinct blackish tone from the imported cobalt that they used during that period and when the heaping and piling effect breaks the surface of the glaze it shows a silvery reflection, The imported cobalt is called Samali blue, they believe it came from Persia and they don't know where in Persia. They have not imported this cobalt for over 500 years. During the Chenghua period they also used a local cobalt called Pitang. The imported cobalt was known to run and they would stabilize it by mixing them together. In Chenghua wares they painted fine outlines and filled them in with a broad brush using loose free style strokes. They refined the clay better than any previous period and with their high firing kilns this often caused them to look burnt or mottled on the bottom in many vessels that have un-glazed bottoms. And bottoms that are glazed sometimes look wavy this can be seen when the light reflects on the glaze. This glaze is easy to distinguish it is very fine, and has tiny even bubbles this can be seen using a loupe. It doesn't get better than true Imperial blue and white Chenghua wares. The auction houses cheat all collectors by not offering the best pieces available to them and this just raises the price of all the inferior pieces that are abundant. This cheats the high end collector because they don't have the opportunity to purchase the rarest and finest pieces in the world. Feel free to contact me about this beautiful Jar.

Sadly all people cannot partake in the auction process in China or America. And in China you only hear what the communist want you to hear, This is why I
say collectors are not being shown the finest pieces from them. During the culture revolution they tried to destroy all the art but the Chinese people hid their valuables just as they've done every
time they were invaded and they remain hidden today. Not until they're free will we see and know what they were really capable of producing. I can tell you that the Auction houses and Museums around
the world are not showing you they finest pieces. That said we here in America still have the freedom to speak the truth to try to expose the corruption that permeates through the entire art market
in America. Collecting Chinese arts is the same as all collectables the finest pieces should rise to the surface. The cabal that is controlling the art market believe they have the perfect scam over
collectors and their really no better then the communist in China. They could care less about the historic significance the Chinese people have made to mankind through all the art they produced for
thousands of years. Hopefully this will change soon in America.
I HAVE A REQUEST FOR ALL COLLECTORS. IF YOU BELIEVE IN HONESTY AND REAL TRANSPARENCY IN THE CHINESE ART MARKET, AND
COLLECTING. (TAKE A LITTLE TIME AND READ MY ENTIRE INTRODUCTION IT JUST MAY BE OF HELP TO YOU AND OTHERS) "ALSO PLEASE HELP ME BY COPYING THE ADDRESS OF THIS SITE FROM THE BROWSER, AND PASTE THE LINK

people that are caught up in something they feel can't be changed.
