These types of jars are made by using clays of two different colours. The top and bottom are then made separate and joined together horizontally.
Condition: On this jar, in a section, the top and bottom has separated along the horizontal luting line. A picture has been provided showing this separation. This is common among these wares.
Size: 15 cm high by 10 cm diameter
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.
