Rare Chinese Song Dynasty Stoneware Jar / Amphora - Yixing Kiln
This rare and unusual stoneware cone-shaped storage jar, or amphora, was made during the Southern Song Dynasty (AD 1127 - 1279), most likely at the Yixing kilns in Jiangsu province in the east of China. It is quite "heavily-potted" and is coated both inside and out in a brown glaze. The body clearly shows potting rings. There are minor kiln scars to the body in places and a circular mark to the glaze at the base from the kiln support.
This is quite a large vessel with a height of 24 cm (9.5 inches). There are chips to the edge of the mouth but no repair or restoration.
