Large Chinese Ming Dynasty Henan Glazed Stoneware Jar
This large stoneware jar was made during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644), possibly earlier, most likely from one of the kilns in Henan province. It is of an unusual yet very pleasing form and particularly "heavily-potted". It is coated in a thick dark-brown to black glaze, the colour of which varies depending on its thickness. The glaze stops just short of the flat base that remains unglazed.
Height 33 cm (13 inches), diameter 28 cm (11 inches). Although there are chips to the edge of the mouth, overall it is in very good condition with no restoration or repair.
