Catalogue Description:
Jar (a) and lid (b), glazed earthenware. Jar and lid are molded yellowware forms. Jar has applied handles. Lid has an applied finial in the shape of a raised round handle. Jar is a cylindrical form. Lid is a round domed shape. Jar has a center creamy white colored band, bordered on either side by thin chocolate brown bands. Below the lower brown band, is another white band that is narrower than the other white band in width, but is larger than the brown bands. The center white band is decorated with a highly stylized blue fauna design. Around the center of the lid (b) is decorated similarly to the jar, with a white band with blue fauna framed by two brown bands. Both jar and lid are an overall muted yellow color. Condition: Good overall condition. Jar (a) has a glaze imperfection to the interior base. Around handles are cracks (glaze separation from firing?). Overall surface dirt. Minor abrasions to base. Lid (b) has firing cracks on and around finial. There are adhesive remnants on the rim. Two separate cracks are near the edge of rim. Chip to underside of rim.
