A glossy black glaze clings to the form of this small kitchen jar's banded surface. The glazed vessel dates to the early 20th-century and was used for storing food and condiments in a provincial Qing-dynasty kitchen, as evidenced by its interior glaze. The wide-mouth jar has a squat form with rounded shoulders, constrained neck, and slightly flared lip. Contrasted by an unfinished base, the black glaze exhibits a rich range of dark colors, clinging to the subtle ridges of the ceramic body to create a pattern of light and dark.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
