Seller: tjantiquties (1,177) 98.6%, Location: Tucson, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 371797428980 Chinese Qing Dynasty (17th-18th Century) Dark Brown Shiny Glaze Wide Mouth Twin Handled Jar Classic dark brown shiny glaze barrel bodied, wide mouth jar with twin handles on two sides. The body is made of a higher fired tan/brown stoneware and wheel thrown. The body flares slightly out reaching a maximum diameter at the shoulder where the bottoms of the handles attach. The shoulder slopes inward and then rises vertically with a long neck to the rim. Twin handles are on two sides attaching at the top to the rim. This jar has a wonderful shiny dark brown orange peel texture, classic glaze used in the 17th and 18th century Qing Dynasty. The base has a moderately wide foot typically seen in the early Qing Dynasty. This is a very well potted and expertly glazed example. Would have been used for storing pickled food or thick liquids such as sorghum. Vessels with the twin handles are more difficult to find and would have been used to run a rope through and then hung from the ceiling. The vessel is in excellent condition for being over 300 years old with no cracks or hairlines. The vessel does show evidence of use with wear around the rim, on the foot and under the handles where the rope hung. The rim and foot have smooth worn areas indicating a lot of use. Under 40X magnification the glaze surface is covered in tiny use wear scratches concentrating around the finish, rim and widest part of the body. The glaze has begun to oxidize. The piece is notable for its vessel form, large size, quality of potting and glazing and for its shiny glaze.
