This set of 2 jars are from Shan Xi province, an ancient state of China. The area is famous for producing rich, aromatic, dark vinegar. Historically these jars were used to store the liquids. Now, their rustic, artistic appeal with the beautiful black gloss and patina make them fantastic design elements. Used singularly or in a grouping, they add boldness and contrast to a space. Also great as vases.
Substantial, all original. 19th century.
