My name is Joseph Sharon I have been collecting Chinese Art for over 40 years. I have collected a hoard of Northern Song Dynasty Imperial Ru ware. This hoard of Ru Ware is the most important find of Chinese Arts in the 21st Century. Ru Wares are the rarest, most important, historically significant ceramics in China’s History and they were 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're totally afraid to revise history because of all the money that Sotheby’s, Christies, Bonham’s are making, and this only confirms how entrenched the corruption is. In Hong Kong April 2012 Sotheby’s sold a flawed merchant ware Ru kiln brush washer for 27 million dollars and should return the money because of my Imperial Ru Ware hoard that proves the Sotheby’s piece is not  Imperial Ru ware its merchant ware. Also Hong Kong 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 that should revise the history books. No one likes being discriminated against and this is what started me to expose them and start this site. I’m offering for sale many fine pieces that are priced fairly and honestly. The scholars and major museums are avoiding my hoard of Ru Wares and this proves they're all puppets of the corrupt auction houses and their crony dealer network. Read the home page, 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 show you comparables of thirteen of the finest wares Sotheby's sold from 2010 to 2116 and fine pieces from my collection so you can see the difference. ( Read and scroll the entire page) all photos can be enlarged just click on them. Also you can see other pieces go to the top of this page and click on the tabs.

SUPER SPECIAL OF THE MONTH: NORTHERN SONG DYNASTY CIZHOU LEOPARD MEIPING VASE $150,000. I offered Heritage auctions to sell this fabulous Vase They said they needed time to research this piece because the artwork was so unique and they're right about the artwork. They found out who I am refused to offer this piece in there auction saying it didn't meet the minimum value. This is how they discriminate against me and other collectors. Go to Sotheby's, Christies, Bonhams auctions and do a search on sold cizhou wares you won't see a better piece in any auction house or museum in the world. There are three known leopard Vases in the world my vase is by far the finest Leopard vase of the three known vases. This Northern Song Dynasty Cizhou Large Leopard Meiping Vase. The Vase has a white slip and sgraffito cut glaze Leopards and lotus leaves decorations The biscuit is grayish color. The vessel measures approx. 22 1/2" tall. I copied photos of the other two known leopard vases so you can compare. Heritage auctions are selling junk pieces for alot of money to unsuspecting collectors and witholding the finest pieces and this hurts all collectors.  ppjrs Joseph.Sharon@chinesemasterpieces.com

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 just 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 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 after.                                                                                                                                                                                               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 over a forty year period from sources inside China.          

THE RU/JU KILN PRODUCED THREE TYPES OF IMPORTANT WARES

I contacted the National Palace Museum and they believe the pieces are from the Song Dynasty. I know they have a collection of Ru/Ju pieces the Emperor Qianlong had poems written on them. The pieces in my Ru/Ju ware collection were hidden away and Qianlong Emperor did not have the ability to collect such pieces, the pieces he collected were from wealthy merchant class pieces. I realize this will clear up some of the questions about the Ru/Ju Kiln wares and Emperor Huizong reign. This is very important that the truth be told. For many years everyone had to rely on the pieces that are in the Qianlong Emperors collection, those pieces are very nice but they are not the real Imperial Ru/Ju ware 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 firing flaws would be sold to the population at a much cheaper price. The second wares they produced were the tribute wares that were given to the Emperor and his court as tribute. All these wares have the fire gilded bands that are around the rim and base and sometimes only the rim. 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 had several colors and many forms and didn't have crushed agate in the glaze. 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 third wares they produced were the Imperial wares that Emperor Huizong commissioned the Ru/Ju Kiln to produce for him 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 opulent tribute wares. These tribute wares were too flamboyant with the fire gilded bands and there opulent forms and colors. Emperor Huizong was an artist and a modest man and he saw beauty in simplicity. Emperor Huizong must have had some contact with the Korean Koryo Dynasty celadon wares because the color he chose and glaze is similar to the Koryo celadon wares. Emperor Huizong decided to commission the Ru/Ju Kiln because they were producing the finest wares.The Imperial commissioned 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 texture from the crushed agate stone that was put into their 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 can see spur marks, Emperor Huizong didn't like the spur marks so he requested they remove them, so they stopped glazing the foot rings and the final version was fired flat in the kiln. Many have marks scratched on the bases like Feng Hua I believe this is a tribute for China and also other marks. 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. 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 other than the court. 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 their flaws, they are beautiful. It is very apparent that Emperor Huizong worked very closely with the Ru/Ju Kiln to develop these Imperial wares. The Ru/Ju Kiln certainly fulfilled the Emperor’s vision and produced these wonderful wares exclusively for the Emperor and his Court. Also I have attached photos that you can see on this Imperial Ru ware Vase they didn't crush the agate stone enough, the glaze has tiny holes caused by the agate, the foot ring you can see a drip of glaze that has chips of agate. All of this is clear conclusive evidence that these are the true Imperial Ru ware that Emperor Huizong commissioned the Ru/Ju Kiln to produce for him and his court.

 

NORTHERN SONG DYNASTY IMPERIAL RU WARE VASE

You can see on my Imperial Ru Ware Vase below they did not crush the agate stone enough and the glaze has tiny holes caused be the agate and the foot ring you can see a drip of glaze that has chips of agate. This proves conclusively that these wares are the true Imperial Ru ware that Emperor Huizong commissioned the Ru Kiln to produce for him and his court. ( Click on photos to enlarge) 

Sotheby sold Northern Song Dynasty Ru Ware brush washer in Hong Kong 

Sotheby's sold in Hong Kong

Sotheby's sold this Ru-ware brush washer in Hong Kong in april 12, 2012 for approx. $27,000,000.00 look it up. This is a merchant class piece not a Imperial piece it has a major firing flaw that can be seen on the inside edge of the rim, which can be seen in photo and no gilded bands. This would be sold to the public not the court. They cheated and swindled the collector that purchased this junk. They should return the money.

My Northern Song Dynasty Ru Ware Vases a Tribute Ru Vase and the Imperial Ru Meiping Vase

These two 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 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 Imperial Ru Celadon Meiping Vase 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. These wares used crushed agate stone in the glaze and this can be seen with a loupe, this proves that these are the wares that the Emperor Huizong Commissioned for himself and his court. The Ru brush washer Sotheby's sold is a merchant ware pieces because it has no fire gilded bands and has firing flaws and all ware that had flaws were sold to the population. 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)

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.

My Fine Blue & White Ming Dynasty 15th C. Chenghua Mark & Period Windswept Figure Jar

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. Special Price

My pieces below clearly show the layered cuprite on the bottom and malachite on top, this only occurs in nature, this is a clear indication of there great age and authenticity and this is more reliable than a TL test.

Totally Dishonest Bonhams Chinese Art Appraisal In New York City

(The Bonhams company tried to intimidate me with legal threats to take it down, I won't take down this liar.) "As per the attached Cease and Desist letter, we hereby demand the immediate removal of the following misleading and defamatory video recording posted by you on YouTube: A hard copy of this letter will follow by FedEx. We trust your actions will be guided accordingly, or Bonhams will be forced to pursue all available rights, remedies and defenses at law and equity relating to this matter."  This man never even handle any Ru-ware until my pieces. I was told this by a Bonhams specialist.

AFTER A SERIES OF EMAILS TO BONHAMS AUCTION COMPANY IN NEW YORK CITY. REQUESTING A FIRST HAND APPRAISAL OF MY NORTHERN SONG DYNASTY IMPERIAL CELADON RU WARE MALLET FORM TRUMPET LIKE NECK VASE OFFERING IT TO SELL IN THERE AUCTION. AFTER SEVERAL EMAILS AND SEVERAL HIGH RESOLUTION PHOTOS THEY GRANTED ME A THE FIRST HAND INSPECTION APPRAISAL OF NINE RU WARE PIECES AND SEVEN ANCIENT AND ARCHAIC JADE CARVINGS I OFFERED TO THEM TO SELL IN THERE NEW YORK GALLERY. IF YOU ARE A HIGH END ART COLLECTOR OF ANY KIND IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT YOU WATCH THE VIDEO THEN MAKE YOUR OWN DETERMINATION WHETHER THEY HAVE A CORRUPT, CONDESCENDING, DISCRIMINATORY POLICY THAT I SUGGEST PERMEATES THROUGH THE ENTIRE ART INDUSTRY RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA. BY WITHHOLDING OFTEN THE FINEST PIECES FROM THE OPEN MARKET AND SWINDLING UNSUSPECTING ART COLLECTORS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA. I LEFT OUT PERSONAL NAMES BECAUSE THEY'RE JUST AS MUCH VICTIMS OF THE UNWRITTEN POLICIES FORCED ON THEM BY THE TOTALLY CORRUPT CORPORATIONS THAT CONTROL THE FINE ART INDUSTRY IN AMERICA. WATCH THE VIDEO AND YOU CAN DETERMINE FOR YOURSELF WHETHER THIS WAS A COMPLETE AND HONEST APPRAISAL BY BONHAMS WHICH HAS BEEN HIGHLY REGARDED EXPERTS IN AUTHENTICATING CHINESE ARTS IN AMERICA THE LAST RU-WARE PIECE THAT WAS SOLD IN HONG KONG IN APRIL 2012 WAS SOLD FOR APPROXIMATELY 27,000,000,00 USD. I CONTEND THIS IS BUSINESS AS USUAL BY THE TOP THREE AUCTION HOUSES RIGHT HERE IN AMERICA


This totally hurts the historic significance of these wares.  All Collector's are at the mercy of the corrupt auction houses and dealers that only do business with clients that have purchased from them or there dealer network. No one knows the true value or what is being sold. This activity cheats all collectors because they have know idea where their property fits in the total market and what the finest pieces actually are. One dealer can sell twenty of the same examples and know one except them actually know what is available in the market. This is not how this market should work. The market must change and let all collectors see what is actually available in the entire market not just what they want to show you and allow all collectors to participate in the market. Until then no one has any idea if they purchased junk or what the true value of their property is and where it fits in the total market. China has opened up and it's time this practice changes.You can see the attitude of Bonhams that permeates through the entire art market in America. This is what they tell you if your not a known collector to them or didn't purchased through their coney dealer or auction house network regardless how wonderful your pieces are, they're liars, cheats, and swindlers.

Sotheby’s cheats and discriminates against collectors. After many email and photos below Sotheby's refused allow me a first hand inspection of my property. they've lied to the person that purchased the Ru ware brush washer in Hong Kong april 2012 their hiding the truth from collector's around the world.

Christie's cheats and discriminates against collectors. I have sent many emails and photos below to Christie's requesting a first hand inspection of my property they refused.

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 same as all collectables the finest pieces should rise to the surface. The people that are 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 AND EMAIL IT TO ANYONE INVOLVED IN ANYWAY WITH CHINESE ARTS. WHETHER THEY BE A COLLECTORS, DEALERS, AUCTION HOUSE, MUSEUM, NEWS MEDIA". Please be courteous in your Emails, there is lots Of good people that are caught up in something they feel can't be changed.

I'm Looking for a collector or attorney to partner up with me in my large Northern Song Dynasty Ru-ware hoard Email me.    Cherry Hill NJ 08003"

"Everything on the site is for sale the pieces that are marked (WORLD CLASS) are the real masterpieces of the collection contact us"

"If your a high end collector this web site may help you understand that your being ripped off and swindled by the corrupt auction houses and their crony dealer network right here in America."

They withhold the finest pieces from the open market. and no one knows how to evaluate their pieces because what you see in the auction results are mostly junk pieces not what is truly available in the market place.
They have lied so much about the true capabilities of the Chinese artisans in every period. And they only want to do business with the victims that have put their trust in them and they're robbing them blind. You must study and know what you are looking at and stop listening to these liars that are telling you all these cock & bull stories about Chinese art. There is a lot of good people that are caught up in their unwritten policies that they have in place and are to afraid to speak up. You must search out the finest pieces, just do the math during the Song Dynasty the population was 100,000,000 in China if just a half of one percent could afford the finest pieces that's a lot of Jade and porcelain made in the Song dynasty. this is why it is imperative that you collect the best possible pieces. You must demand they stop their corrupt policies and start offering the finest pieces on the open market so you will know where your collection fits in the real market place. They must open the market to everyone and stop the discrimination because the way they set this up you can't win because only they know what is really in the market place.  

 

 



I will sit down with any expert or scholar in the world to examine my N Song Dynasty Ru Ware first hand. They're afraid to go against Sotheby's because they sold that flawed Ru Kiln piece of junk for 27,000,000.

"Check my hoard of the finest and most important collectible ceramics China ever produced Imperial Northern Song Dynasty Ru-Ware"

 

If you are an expert in Chinese
art or a collector Of fine Chinese art and you have questions about authenticity or dating of any piece that I have listed, your welcome to contact me to set up an appointment to view and handle the piece first hand. It is suggested purchasers should contact me and set up and appointment to view the piece first hand.

 


 

The Ru ware that the National Palace Museum has in there collection are pieces that the Qianlong Emperor wrote poems on and these wares are not the Tribute or Imperial Ru ware that the Song Dynasty Emperor Huizong was receiving from the Ru Kiln. The Ru wares that are in Museums around the world are merchant class wares, not Tribute or Imperial wares. I have also offered donations by email to the British Museum, Philadelphia art Museum, The Cleveland Museum, The Smithsonian Sackler Freer Museum, Metropolitain Museum, etc. and they all didn't answer my email. This is part of the cover-up of  Sotheby's sale of the Ru brush washer in Hong Kong April 2012 for 27,000,000. I can prove it is not an Imperial piece and they should return the money and acknowledge what I have shown them all about Ru Wares. Right now their all trying to cover-up the truth about Ru wares. Because the bigger truth is that they're ripping off collectors for billions of dollars by not offering the finest pieces at their auctions and private sales. Major Museums and Universities are the puppets of the auction houses they'll not tell the truth they do whatever the auctions house want them to do. As one example even to the point of withholding the historic truth of the Song Dynasties Emperor Huizong and the Ru Kiln. They have no integrity and sit by and watch collectors being swindled out of their money and do nothing to stop this theft of billions of dollars from unsupecting collectors around the world. And these phony curators worry about their positions being lost. What you see being sold at auction is only a fraction of what is being sold and most of the pieces are junk. One way to stop them is stop buying the junk their offering you.
