The amphora shape of this vase, modeled after Hellenistic prototypes, has been translated into Chinese idiom by the use of a single color glaze and the substitution of dragon handles for the ordinary loop variety. The finely crackled, almost colorless glaze falls in a graceful swag that separates the glossy upper body from the unglazed portion below.
