19th Century Chinese Stoneware Jar


In 19th century China jars like this would have held wines, foods and other consumable items. The combination of simple, earthy glaze with incised decorations and small handles make this jar a subtle decorative element. Spots of the ceramic peek through the glaze to provide unique texture.
