This large jar from China’s late Qing Dynasty has a heavy cream-colored glaze as background for a design of peonies outlined in chocolate brown. Peony petals are touched with subtle blue/brown shading. The jar, though it is in the style of Chizhou (Tz’u-chou) pottery of the much earlier Northern Song period (960-1127AD), was produced in the mid to late 19th century, reflecting the common practice of Chinese artisans to copy techniques and styles of ancient dynasties in honor and admiration of the skills of their ancestors. This piece shows evidence of many years of use but is in good condition with no cracks or chips. Dimensions: height 17” (43 cm), diameter 15” (38 cm).
