Jar and cover

Vessels dating from the Tang period are known for their balanced and robust forms, often projecting a sense of strength and vigour. Our jar and cover is no exception. Made from serpentine stone it was turned on a lathe which helped to make our piece very regular in outline; its cover is a perfect fit. Although it has thick walls, some areas are translucent.
