Most often the design is the determining factor of the desirability of a jar by a collector.  Occasionally, however, it is the vessel shape that first captures one’s eye.  This is generally true when the design is not overwhelming and obliterating the vessel shape.

 

This early Santo Domingo jar has a very minimal design with the cream slip predominating.  These design choices make the vessel’s shape seem even more captivating.  The jar rises up from the base in an outward swell to the mid-point, and then curves in to a sharp shoulder.  It then reverses to a concave curve that ends with a flared rim.  It is the voluminous body, high shoulder and restricted neck that combine to make this an amazingly beautiful vessel. 

 

Condition: there is a fire cloud on one side of the jar and a small rim chip

Provenance: from the large collection of a gentleman from Arizona
