Charged with the humble task of storing dry goods, this small terracotta pot was hand-shaped in the 19th century with balanced proportions and a beautifully irregular brown-green slip finish. The lobed pot features a round form with a narrow base and a constrained neck flanked by two small strap handles. The jar has a quiet beauty, patterned by rhythmic grooves to enliven its simple provincial construction. Fluid ribbed designs cascade across the surface, creating a wonderfully textured exterior for easier grip. The chiseled surface of the pot has weathered with time, developing subtle color variation and adding rich character to the terracotta.
