Bottle

Label Text

The geographical origins of this bottle were not known to Freer, who purchased it from the Parisian dealer Siegfried Bing along with a number of other East Asian ceramics. Nevertheless, the collector described it as "very important" and suggested that it be exhibited occasionally by itself, as well with groupings of Temmoku wares. In the Peacock Room he placed it adjacent to earth-toned Japanese tea bowls, iridescent Raqqa ware, an antique Roman faience jar, and a Song dynasty tomb jar.
