Chinese Song to Yuan Amber Glazed Stoneware Storage Jar
Chinese Southern Song to Yuan Dynasty amber-brown glazed stoneware ovoid form storage jar with everted rim flange, four horizontal loop handles high at the shoulder, and flat base. Probably from the Fujian kiln. 8 3/4"H. Circa 13th/14th century. The jar is from the Tucson collection of a couple who lived in Asia in the 1960's. It bears the registration seal of the Philippine Museum in Manila. Very good overall condition with typical wear to glaze. The glaze is slightly lighter than the images suggest. A brown-glazed jar of similar shape, loop handles, and rim attributed to the Song dynasty is in the Barlow Collection at the University of Sussex. These jars were produced for centuries in Guangdong Province and other port cities from the Song dynasty on to store export food and goods.
