Jars of this type were made at various kilns in northern China that produced the varieties of wares classed as Cizhou ware, named after the kiln site in Cizhou county, Hebei province. The smooth surface of the lustrous black glaze is broken by vertical ribbing made by applying thin trails of slip (liquid clay).
