DESCRIPTION: Long acknowledged as masters of porcelain, the Chinese also excelled at pottery making. Qing Dynasty domestic pottery used regional clays and showed distinctive regional styles. This pottery, used for the storage of oil and other household goods, exhibited tremendous, quiet beauty as well as utility. Crafted of red clay and originating from Jiangxi Provence, this handsome wine jar with four looped handles and spout is an excellent example with its incised decorations in two-toned brown and yellow ochre glazes. Dating to the mid 19th C, it is in good condition with some scuffs to the glaze around the rim and handles. To see another Jiangxi companion piece, go to our listing #GD36. DIMENSIONS: 9 ½” diameter (24 cm) x 13 ½” high (34 cm).
