Chinese Tang Dynasty Glazed Pottery Jar
This attractively-shaped pottery jar was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is made from a creamy-white pottery that is relatively highly-fired. The upper surface and inner mouth have been coated in a white slip on top of which has been applied the fairly thin pale yellow glaze. The yellow glaze does have a hint of green and in a couple of places where the glaze is thicker, there are distinct patches of bright green. The glaze is very finely-crackled.
Height 15 cm, diameter 16 cm. There is minor loss of glaze in places where the glaze is particularly thin, a small kiln scar to the side of the body from manufacture, a scratch to the body and a chip to the foot edge. Overall though, this is a nice jar and it is free from any restoration or repair.
For information: this jar is part of a modest yet very interesting private English collection of Chinese antiquities acquired during the 1990s that we recently acquired.
