Large Fahua jar with 5 evenly spaced loops at the neck. Flowers, leaves and scrolls surround the jar coloured in light brown and yellow against a green ground. The neck ending with a rolled rim. These types of jars are normally dated to the 15th century (Ming Dynasty). The base, as well as the inside of the jar are both left unglazed. On the base are the remnants of an old collection label.
Condition: This jar is in very good condition, no breaks. There is some slight wear and some chips to the enamels, and some areas where it has been repainted for a missing enamel chip, but this should be expected on a item of this age. Please examine the pictures carefully, as these small areas of wear have been shown.
The approximately size of this jar is 12" high by 11-1/2" diameter at its widest point.
Provenance: Estate of a Physician in Wynnewood, P.A., U.S.A.
Note: Due to Ruby Lanes new requirement that all items of an antique nature must come with verification from a recognized authority in the field or purchased from a major auction house, which would be highly cost prohibited and would have to be passed on in the cost to the buyer, I have altered the description to comply.
