As evidenced by the interior glaze, this stoneware vessel was once used in a provincial Qing-dynasty kitchen for storing or fermenting food and condiments. The small kitchen jar has a slightly tapered form, shaped with rounded shoulders, two small strap handles and a slightly constricted neck. The rich, dark brown glaze has a glassy sheen and expresses a range of warm undertones as it sheets across the jar's tapered sides. Textured by firing imperfections, the jar is beautifully imperfect and boasts a natural speckled pattern that calls to be touched.

Jar has multiple hairline cracks along the rim.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
