These early 20th-century ceramic jars from China's Shandong province have a bottle-neck shape meant for storing vinegar or wine made from rice or grains. We suspect these jars were created to store wine for commercial sale, and were likely stoppered with a cork or wax seal.

Left unglazed, the jugs are decorated only the irregular, organic smoke patterns created during the firing process. We love the neutral color story told by this set of vessels and the emphasis placed on their strong, yet restrained silhouettes.

Left jar: 17.25"H x 9.5"Dia
Middle jar: 10"H x 5.75"Dia
Right jar: 17.75"H x 11"Dia
