Offered for sale is a large and unusual Mortuary Grain Storage Jar. The Glaze appears to have been a "Proto-porcelain" glaze but most of the glaze has been lost after many hundreds of years. The pattern of the glaze is still visible and one small area on the body and lid has retained part of the original finish. The Jar has not been damaged or repaired. The lid has two firing flaws (cracks). The Jar and lid measure 20"h x 10.25" in dia. The base is 3.5" in diameter. Please email any questions.
