Chinese Ming Dynasty Porcelain "Bullet" Jar
This heavily-potted jar was made during the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644). Jars of this type are known as "bullet" jars and were made at kilns in Guangdong province as well as, possibly, other kiln sites. Many were exported as this type of jar can be found throughout South-east Asia. This example is coated both inside and out in a thick greenish-grey crackled glaze. It has an unglazed concave base. It is quite a large example of its type with a height of 16.5 cm (6.5 inches). This jar has been made in two halves that were joined around the waist prior to glazing. There is a kiln scar to the glaze at the waist, a small chip to the glaze at the rim and a surface chip to the base. There is no repair or restoration - overall, a nice example.
