Large Early 20th Century Chinese Wine Jar

$980

About

This 19th century ceramic jar from northern China is formed in a traditional shape meant for storing wine and spirits made from rice and grains. Variation during firing has resulted in delightfully irregular patterns over its textured surface, and its balanced, oblong form gives the piece an elegant sculptural presence.
