Eastern Han Green Glazed Pottery Jar


A green glazed jar fired in the Eastern Han. It is a funeral ware developed from the lead-glazed pottery of the Warring States period, and its shape imitates bronze ware. Copper oxide is used as a colour-developing agent, and by firing at a low temperature, metallic colour development is reproduced, and it is soft earthenware, unlike conventional high-fired ash glazed stoneware.

This piece has a particularly excellent impression of the balance between green glaze and silvering, although a considerable number had been fired and excavated, as evidenced by the trace of stacking marks. It is in generally good condition, and the slight inclination caused by the fragments of the firing supports is a good point as well.
