This classic, northern green-glazed stoneware jar has four loop handles on the shoulder to facilitate tying a lid firmly in place. The transparent olive-green glaze coats only the upper portion of the jar and pooled to a handsome, deep olive color at the horizontal ridge that encircles the waist. Such ridges served a practical function to stop the flow of the glaze and prevent it from dripping down and possibly fusing the jar to its kiln supports.
