Ming Dynasty Cizhou-type Ware White Slip Jar with Stylized Pattern in Underglaze Iron


A guan jar fired in a Cizhou-type kiln in the Ming dynasty. It has a wide-mouthed straight body, and stylized patterns are painted in underglaze iron over the white slipped ground.

The Cizhou-type kilns of the Ming dynasty were smaller production sites than those of the Song and Yuan dynasties, producing mainly daily-use vessels for the common people. The kilns were concentrated around Pengcheng in Hebei Province, and this piece was probably produced in that area too. The abstracted curved branches pattern drawn with a light brush stroke is impressive.

There are no noticeable defects, and the condition is excellent. The crack inside the base had occurred during the kiln process and did not go through.
