A cool, blue-black glaze coats the stout body of this early 20th-century terra cotta kitchen jar. As evidenced by the glazed interior, this wide-mouth jar was once used daily in a provincial Chinese kitchen for fermenting foods and condiments. The jar is flanked by two small strap handles with a slightly tapered form, rounded shoulders, and a rounded rim.

Stopping short of the base, the dark glaze has a glossy finish and displays a range of colors, from dark blue to pale grey to warm browns. A subtle ridged texture patterning the jar's body manipulates the glaze to pool and drip irregularly across the surface, adding dimension and character to the jar. Wonderfully textured with firing imperfections, this jar exemplifies the timeless appeal of handcrafted pottery and makes a wonderful vase or planter.

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.”
