A very rare Jianyang temmoku wine jar of Song dynasty (11th to 12th century) that has the characteristic black body clay, traces of burial earth are left intact around the handle and mouth areas of the vase for authentication purposes. The typical thick black glaze with the aforementioned black body clay, clearly designates the origin about 230 km from Jingdezhen in the region of Jiangxi province. Condition is very good without any hairlines, chips, or repairs. The glaze is slightly worn in the high spots along potting ridges, along with some fine grazing of the glaze. Height is 20.3 cm , width is 17.8 cm. (8 in H x 7 in W). This wine jar is extremely rare as it is not commonly found, as most types of temmoku ware are tea bowls.
