This massive, heavy storage jar was probably used to store wine, cooking oil or another liquid staples from the Chinese kitchen. The jar was potted in two halves and then luted together. It was painted with a glaze and then fired at a high temperature, with the glaze turning brown. It has a short neck with high rim.
