This large glazed jar was hand-crafted in China's Shanxi province over a century ago. Masterfully crafted, the jar is patterned in high relief, featuring medallion portraits of blooming flowers. A textured trim of scalloped and bead-like motifs border the jar's, framed by a pattern of stylized symbols of longevity. The rim is left unglazed, the exposed terra cotta set in beautiful contrast with the umber brown glaze that drips and pools down the jar's sides.

The base of this vessel has been drilled to allow for drainage.
