A nineteenth century black glazed pottery bottle of faceted form with ring neck.

Whilst black glazes were originally utilised by the middle classes owing to their durability, they were ultimately taken up by the Chinese upper classes. Wares with glazes in shades from ochre to black were achieved by using iron-rich clay. The larger the iron content, the darker the piece.
