This is a very large glazed Chinese oval earthenware pot / planter that has a beautiful finish.
For those familiar with the antique / vintage Chinese 100 year old egg pots, you can see the similarities in the designs and style in this pot. This enormous pot has the same color schemes and dimensional techniques on the exterior, as well as the inside finish.
The outside of this vessel is finished in a brown color with raised tan / yellow decorations. There are two circular frames on each of the long sides. Inside each circle is a bird. Each end has foliage and floral designs that are set in a more rectangular shaped frame. Under the top lip are 3 narrow bands that go around the entire pot. There is also a single band closer to the bottom.
The inside of the pot has a smooth aqua blue glaze.
There is a single drain hole on one end.
Since we acquired this beautiful pot from an estate and we have not been able to find anything remotely similar, we have no information as to it’s age, but our guess would be the second half of the the 20th century.
This piece can be used in many ways, such as an indoor fountain base or small Koi pond, or for the same on a patio or deck. Other than the drain hole, there are no other holes so it is up to the buyer to determine it’s use and how to adapt it for that use. We also do not know if this pot is frost proof, so we recommend not letting it be exposed to freezing temperatures without doing your own research.
This pot is being sold as is.
