Item #2 Squat Vase/ Jar
The second item is a what looks like a Provincial heavily potted ( very heavy infact) squat jar/ vase. It appears to have the Shou character repeated around the body and a crude scrolling type pattern around it. It is 5 inches tall and just over 6 inches in diameter. The base is typically unmarked and unglazed. The unusual thing about it is the color, I assume it is intentional that as well as the blue and white/ grey, parts of the design are picked out in a kind of iron red. I have not seen this on anything else ( on this type of provincial type ware) This is quite hard to show in photos but will send you the best. Again it shows the usual signs of wear and is covered in small rust spots. Hopefully you may have seen something like this before?
Thank you. Andy
