Burmese 16th Century Glazed Pottery Jar
This "heavily-potted" jar dates to around the 16th century. It is made from a reddish-brown pottery. There are two loop handles on opposite sides at the shoulder as well as a series of small round appliqués that surround the shoulder as well as a cluster of them below each handle. The upper outer surface and the lower inner surface have been coated in a clear dark reddish-brown glaze with runs towards the base and a variance in its colour according to its thickness. There is a kiln scar in the glaze to the lower body.
Diameter 24 cm (9.5 inches), height 119 cm (7.5 inches). There is surface wear to the base and around the waist, also a chip to the rim, but there is no repair or restoration.
