A large ginger jar decorated in polychrome enamels with front and back panels showing warrior scenes.

The very large, thick, heavy porcelain rounded jar with unglazed mouth and foot ring. The jar was so large that it was manufactured in two pieces and fired together to form the large jar. You can see the spot where the two pieces were joined near the mid body. The body glaze is not a brilliant white and is very thick, smooth, and looks shiny. The design is intricate and colorful green, blue, iron red, yellow, and eggplant over glaze enamels. Black was used to accent and outline.

There is a double ring of underglaze cobalt used on the base center. The broad foot ring is rounded and then cut.

MEASUREMENTS

11” (27.9 cm) diameter x 11” (27.9 cm) tall. Weighs 7 lb 12.5 oz (3525 g)

CONDITION

There are several hairlines on the body. All hairlines are not noticeable from the outside due to heavy decoration – unless you know where to look.

- One is several inch long hairline along the edge of one of a warrior panel. It also shows on the inside. (See photo of both sides)
- Another extends from a concussion on a leave between the panes. This resulted in a chip on the outside that has been partially repaired to make it less noticeable.
- The final one is smaller and located below and to the left of the one mentioned above.

There are kiln flaws such as a bump above a warrior’s sword, black spots, grit near the foot, glaze spots, and reserves. There is slight wear to the outside of the jar. Otherwise the jar looks fresh and entire.

A large ginger jar that will be seen from across the room and will add a distinctive accent to your décor. It will make a large addition to a collection. It is big.
