Ming Dynasty Cizhou-type Ware White Slip Jar


A white slip jar fired in a Cizhou-type kiln in the Ming Dynasty. It has a bulging shape with an angled shoulder. The Cizhou-type kilns decreased in the Ming dynasty compared to the Song and Yuan dynasties, mainly producing daily vessels for the commoners. This piece has a white exterior with white slip and transparent glaze and a dark iron glaze like Tenmoku glaze applied on the interior and the mouth. An example which has the impression of the Cizhou-type tradition of the equestrian people’s severity coexists with the warmth of folk kilns like Japan’s Shiro-Tamba.

There are no noticeable flaws other than minor chips on the mouth. It comes with a box.
