This is a nice small southern Song dynasty (1127-1279) qingpai funerary grain storage house. It stands on a slightly short footrim with a recess base. The outer ring of the footrim is shaved inward. From the footrim, it slightly curved outwards to a bulb like body with a wide open mouth rim. The cover of the jar has a tradition Chinese rooftop design. The top of the roof has a ruyi like or cloud design and the four corners of the roof has a raised tile and at the end it, it curved back upward. The footrim and the base of the grain house reveal a whitish fine clay indicating that it could originate from the hutian kiln.
The conditions are shown in photographs no. 3 and 5. There are colour variation to the body and the two chips to the mouth of the body as shown in photo no. 5. There are general abrasion, as can be expected of a funerary object. Other than that, the object is in great condition.
The dimension of the qinpai grain store house: the height is 15.3cm and the width is 9.3cm.
