On the body of the ewer, there are perfect embossed lotus flowers. They are very intricate and detailed.

Even the handle has lines on it.

See the line on the handle?

This ewer probably was made on the 12th century. It is from the Song Dynasty era.

This ewer probably from the Southern Song dynasty. Although I am not sure about which exact province or kiln that produced this.

I also like the colour of the ewer! It is olive colour! I didn’t know the Chinese fancy this kind of colour!
