Chinese Song Dynasty Stoneware Dragon Jar (AD 960 - 1279)

This interesting stoneware jar was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 -1279). It is "heavily-potted" and has an applied decoration around its shoulder featuring a dragon chasing a pearl; the dragon, of course, seen as a divine mystical creature and the pearl a symbol of strength, fortune and transformation. It is coated in a thick dark iron-brown glaze, that falls short of the base of the jar, on top of a pale slip. Note the ridge to the lower body that has prevented the glaze from running.

Height 19 cm (7.5 inches). Condition is very good; there are a few minor chips to the protruding edges but there is no repair or restoration.

Our last image shows other jars of this type that we are offering for sale separately: these jars have all been excavated from Sichuan province.
