A Cizhou-type white-ribbed black-glazed jar

金  磁州窯系黑釉白條紋雙耳罐

The jar is of well potted ovoid form with aa wide mouth with rolled lip. The sides are decorated with triplets of sharply ridged white ribs, set against the dark brown ground. The handles, shaped like tabbed loops, link the shoulders to the short, slightly tapered neck. The glaze falls short the base, to reveal the fine light-coloured body.
