Description

The jar potted with a slightly rounded belly, broad shoulder and slightly flaring neck. The jar and cover covered all over with an deep yellow glaze. The domed cover surmounted by a conical finial. The base is also glazed in yellow. 

In China, yellow is the colour of the imperial power, for the exclusive use of the emperor himself and its closest relatives. The reign of Kangxi (1661-1722) is a renewal for the production of monochrome porcelains, especially with the reopening of Jingdezhen kilns around 1682-1683. Under the drive of Tang Ying as supervisor of official kilns, crafsmen develop new forms and produce high quality porcelain ware.
