Song Dynasty Storage Jars
A pair of extremely early celadon storage jars from the song dynasty period 1127-1279AD. The pair were purchased two decades ago from an elderly lady who`s family lived in China when she was a girl and these were some of the items they returned with. They are crazed in such a way as would suggest they were buried. Wonderful form and heavily potted with a brown wash to the base.
Both measure approx. 7 inches tall and the distance across the mouth on one is 3 1/8 inches and 3 3/8 on the other.
A perfect pair for prominent display; if only they could talk.
