A rustic jar with stylized designs on a rich blue/green glaze, this 19th century Chinese utility ware evokes a time when even the most humble items were hand made with artistry. Three freely brushed sketches of flowers and calligraphy decorate the sides of the vessel; the top has three abstract foliage designs. Uneven coverage of the turquoise glaze adds to the jar's earthy appeal. Brown glaze covering the interior indicates it was intended for use as a storage urn. Made of coarse, heavy clay, it originated in Hunan Province. This piece has imperfections in the glaze found in most provincial utility ware but is in very good condition. Dimensions: height 12" (30 cm), diameter 8" (20 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
