An opaque espresso brown glaze coats the body of this small early 20th-century kitchen jar. As evidenced by the glazed interior, the jar was once used daily in a Qing-dynasty kitchen for fermenting or storing foods and condiments. The wide-mouth jar has a cylindrical form with angular shoulders, two small strap handles, and a rounded, unglazed lip at the opening. The dark brown glaze has a subtle sheen rather than a high shine and is textured by the banded surface of the vessel.

“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.”
