Description
Ash green glaze covers this vessel with appealing speckles throughout, stopping at the base. The ovoid body expands protrusively at the belly, narrowing sharply at the neck rising to an everted lip decorated with a band of incised lines. Small circular handles rest on the shoulder of the vessel. Given the form of the vessel, it is likely it was designed to contain precious liquids. China's long history of preeminence in ceramic production was based upon the ability of the potters to innovate. Constant experimentation with various techniques brought about significant development in earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. This vessel exemplifies the potter's expertise with glazing and moulding. - (H.034)
