This green glazed jar is designed in the style of ancient Chinese ceremonial vessels found in temples or tombs. Often elaborately decorated with miniature figures and relief patterns, such vessels were used for storing food offerings to the gods or an ancestor. This updated example has the basic form of a baluster jar or hu vase, a curving shape defined by a wide, rounded body with a narrow neck and a tapered base. The jar is minimally decorated, simply patterned with bands of ruffles and horizontal grooves. A pale, celadon-green glaze cloaks the exterior, pooling in the wave-like trims and textured with pitted wear and allover crazing.
