|Ming Transitional Period Wucai Jar, Cover and Stand,|
18th C. Mutton far jade lid handle
Size: 7" tall and 8" wide without stand or lid. Overall height with the stand and lid is 15 ".
Condition: Excellent overall condition, the original wire handles have long since been removed and can be put back as the holes were filled with only a soft clay like paste. Around the inside of the rim is a very small line which has glaze over it, which indicates this was formed during the firing when the pot shrank slightly. The carved lid with early jade finial is a replacement from the 19th C.
