Seller: tjantiquties (1,175) 98.6%, Location: Tucson, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 371794692724 Chinese Late Yuan/Early Ming Dynasty (14th-15th Century) Dark Brown Glaze Large Rounded Body Small Neck Jar 14th-15th century, late Yuan to early Ming dynasty large size round body small neck jar with dark brown glaze. The body of this jar is made of gray/tan stoneware typical of pieces made in the Fujian area kilns starting late in the Yuan Dynasty. The form is bulbous with a small long neck ending in an out turned large rim. Jars like this would have been used to hold liquids such as rice wine. The jar has a matt dark brown glaze with no under glace that becomes typical in the early Ming Dynasty. The base is thick, typical of Yuan Dynasty, and the foot is flat, typical of the Ming Dynasty This is why I classify this as a late Yuan Dynasty to early Ming Dynasty. For reference a discussion of these wares from the Fujian region can be found at http://www.koh-antique.net/temmoku/temmoku.html. The jar is in excellent condition for its age. There is a chip in the lip. Lots of nice grazing in the glaze due to age. This piece shows lots of wear around the rim, the widest part of the body where it was held. The base is smooth from wear. The piece also shows lots of evidence of burial. The unglazed surfaces are covered in manganese and other crystal formations. The glaze is nicely oxidized. The piece is notable for its large size and for its unusual round form which is not often seen. This jar would be a highlight in a Yuan/Ming Dynasty stoneware collection. Provenience: An Old Delaware Estate Dimensions: Height 6 1/2 inches (16.5 cm), Widest Diameter (at body middle), 7 inches (17.8 cm). Rim Diameter 2 1/8 inches (5.4 cm), Base Diameter 4 1/2 inches (11.4 cm). If you have any questions or require additional information please call me at 520-429-0177.
