This tapered, ovoid ginger jar harkens back to the Song Dynasty (960 to 1279 AD) when artisans perfected the art of monochrome glazes. The vase's deep, rich red glaze is often called "sang-de-boeuf" or "oxblood" in the West. Creating this particular glaze, which was notoriously difficult to achieve, was lost for centuries but revived in the 18th century, when the imperial court commissioned potters to recover the technique. The wine-red glaze has a beautiful mottled appearance, speckled with flecks of dark red and contrasted by lilac and white undertones.

Some blistering of glaze at the base.
