Catalogue Note

See two related black-glazed jars, one illustrated in Regina Krahl, Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection, London, 2006, vol. 3, no. 1517; and another in the Victoria and Albert Museum, illustrated in Nigel Wood, Chinese Glazes, London, 1999, p. 145, where the author discusses the possibility that the designs were painted beneath the glaze with an iron-rich slip, unlike the russet glazes that were 'splashed', which was the preferred technique with northern blackware.
