Tall Chinese Ming Dynasty Glazed Storage Jar (Ex. Lammers Collection)
This ovoid-shaped stoneware jar was made around the 15th - 16th century at one of the kilns in South China where "Martaban" jars were produced for the carriage and storage of trade goods around South-east Asia. It has a thick rolled rim and four sturdy loop handles around the shoulder. The upper body is coated in a finely-crackled yellowish-brown glaze with the inside, lower body and base remaining unglazed. The base is concave.
Quite a large jar with a height of 29.5 cm (11.5 inches). This is a very good example of its type, being in fine condition with no restoration or repair.
This jar is from the Lammers Collection: see images for more details
