Chinese Southern Song to Yuan Dynasty amber-brown glazed pottery ovoid form storage jar with everted rim flange, four horizontal loop handles high at the shoulder, and flat base. The interior and base are unglazed. Probably from the Fujian kiln. 8 3/4"H. Circa 13th/14th century. The jar is from the Tucson collection of a couple who lived in Asia in the 1960's. It bears the registration seal of the Philippine Museum in Manila. Very good overall condition with typical wear to glaze. A brown-glazed jar of similar shape, loop handles, and rim attributed to the Song dynasty is in the Barlow Collection at the University of Sussex. These jars were produced for centuries in Guangdong Province and other port cities from the Song dynasty on to store export food and goods.
