Moon Jars derive their name from their resemblance to the full moon, both being large and round. This piece is an excellent example of Josen white porcelain, production of which flouished during the 18th century. The hight of a moon jar is roughtly equal to its radius at its widest point. This slight flaw lends a more natural, organic quality to the jar, reminiscent of the moon itself, which often appears slightly misshapen. Old cracks. H 34cm
