This is a good example of an utilitarian Tang Dynasty (618-907CE) jar that would have been used for storage. It is roughly but skillfully potted and the green glaze has gathered into a light blue drop that in other kilns might have been deliberately exploited so as to produce the sought-after suffused grey effect. Diameter: 5cm. Condition: Intact and good with no repairs; normal wear to the rim.
