Lot Essay

The present globular jar is decorated with a deeply cut flower design typical of the high quality ceramic wares from the kilns of north China in the Five Dynasties and Northern Song periods. The decoration is characterized by the effective use of multiple overlapping petals which create a rich surface texture. A similar jar in the Institute of Archaeology, Shanxi province, is illustrated in the exhibition catalogue, The Masterpieces of Yaozhou Ware, The Museum of Oriental Ceramics, Osaka, 1997, p. 24, pl. 24.
