A Western Han dynasty (206 BC) olive green-glazed "Yue Ware" storage jar. Southern clay requires firing at a relatively high temperature, and this olive-green glaze is a side effect of the minor impurities in the clay and wood ash mixture used at the time. Its speculated that this would have been used to store wine. This piece comes with Thermoluminescence (TL) test certificate. For sale.
