Three very old stoneware jars. Left to right description and dimensions as follows: #1 Black stoneware jar from a Southern Kiln, possibly a Guangdong, i.e., Xicun or Bijiashan, probably Five Dynasties. The thin glaze and shape remind me of Tang, Changsha ware but wrong kind of clay. Some fritting on the rim. H: 8.8cm/3.4in and D: 6cm/2.5in. #2 Greenish glazed stone ware jar- most likely Tang but could be latter- there is a chip on the mouthrim H: 12cm/4.8in and D: 10cm/4.1, #3 Black Cizhou stoneware jar circa Jin Dynasty, probably from a Henan kiln. Quite nice with russet highlights. H: 8cm/3.1in and D: 6.5cm/2.5in.
