Chinese 18th / 19th Century Stoneware Jar (not Song Dynasty)
This wide-bodied stoneware storage jar dates to the 18th or 19th century although over the last few years many similar examples from a shipwreck have appeared on the market that have been mis-attributed to the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279). Both inner and outer surfaces have been coated in a very attractive brown, almost reddish blaze. The rim edge, lower outer body and base remain unglazed.
Diameter 13 cm (5.5 inches). It is in fine condition with no restoration or repair and just a couple of tiny chips to the glaze at the mouth edge.
This jar, together with some other South-East Asian & Chinese ceramics we are offering for sale, has come from a local collection, established over the last twenty years or so.
