A rich brown glaze coats the surface of this round wine jar, interrupted only by a sweep of light brown around the widest point. Crafted in the early 20th century, the jar was once used in a Qing-dynasty apothecary to store wines infused with medicinal herbs, as evidenced by its narrow neck and interior glaze. Contrasted by an unfinished base, the irregular glaze exhibits a rich depth of color and pitted wear that gives the pot fantastic character.
