Description Provenance Credit
Description This jar was placed in a tomb. It was fired in a tunnel kiln, where firings could take a week or more, and where the reactions that occurred as ash from burning wood fell on the vessels created a natural glaze.
Provenance Beverly Becker, Bel Air, MD [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1994, by gift.
Credit Gift of Beverly Becker in memory of General and Mrs. Carter B. Magruder, 1994
