A lustrous brown glaze coats the slender tapered form of this late 19th-century kitchen jar. As evidenced by the glazed interior, the jar was once used daily in a Qing-dynasty kitchen for fermenting foods and condiments. The tapered jar features wide, sloped shoulders and a constricted neck with a thick, rounded lip. The warm brown glaze was layered atop a darker underglaze, creating a subtle color block on the lower half of the vessel. The opaque finish is smooth to the touch, textured only slightly by the banded surface of the ceramic form.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
