This late 19th century Chinese utility jar has a glaze of such inviting color that it elevates the piece to folk art status. The primarily turquoise glaze has areas of deep blue and purple, and then stops short of the base showing a glimpse of brown. From Jiangsu, known as China’s ceramics province, this heavy piece has no chips or cracks but does have two firing flaws on one side (see photo enlargement #4). Dimensions: height 9 “ (23 cm), diameter 10” (25.4 cm).
