Jar with dish-like mouth


Anonymous - Jar with dish-like mouth
Ceramic wares with beige or greenish “celadon” glaze were among the most valued vessels in China. Their early examples, such as this vessel inspired by ancient jars, are often based on archaic shapes. Like the celadons dating from the peak periods of the Song and Yuan dynasties, they are characterized by the pure forms and fine decoration that laid the foundation for Chinese aesthetic tradition of later periods.
