China was the earliest known civilization to make cast iron, first appearing thousands of years ago during the illustrious Zhou dynasty. This more recent 19th century jar originally used by a Chinese herbal doctor exhibits the rustic character and textured surface created by the sand mold that was used to shape the vessel and Craft its delicate lotus design. The finish has aged beautifully over time and acquired a rich brown patina.
