This large, antique Chinese jar was hand crafted in that ancient tradition, with a long, tapering body and rounded shoulder. Typically, this one has a brown underglaze and black overglaze that streams from the shoulder, down the piece. Used for wine or vinegar storage in factories, and buried in the ground for centuries, this piece now makes an important accessory for the modern home or garden.
