A speckled, dark brown glaze coats the gently tapered form of this late 20th-century kitchen jar. As evidenced by the glazed interior, the jar was once used daily in a Qing-dynasty kitchen for fermenting foods and condiments. The wide-mouth jar stands tall upon a slightly flared base and is flanked by two small strap handles. Thinning just short of the base, the glaze has a thick, opaque finish and is smooth to the touch, textured only slightly by the banded surface of the ceramic form. The dripped nature of the glaze results in an eye-catching color contrast, providing a certain depth to the textures and colors of the jar.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
