This pair of jars sculpts the traditional lotus theme. Ancient Chinese defined this jade-like white glass as a kind of jade because it had similar aesthetics with jade. Due to the limitations of ancient glass firing technology, its value was comparable to that of silver. The glaze production was popular in the Ming Dynasty and reached its peak during the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty. Before the Yongzheng Period, Xinjiang, a place where traditional Chinese jade was produced, had been in a semi-independent state. Since the sales channels of jade was blocked, the jade-like white glass became a substitute for jade. These two pieces of glass jars with lids represents the pinnacle of Chinese glassware. 3.7 inch H, 3.10 inch Diameters
