In my internet research I came upon examples and description of the Fahua technique and because of similarities I wonder if it could possibly be an example of Fahua in very low relief. . It does not have a smooth surface - one can feel all of the decoration and outlining with the fingertip. I also noticed that Fahua is thickly potted, often has a cobalt blue background, commonly has flowers as the
subject which are outlined in black or gray - all of which one sees on this jar. I will greatly appreciate your appraisal and thank you in advance.
RD Langer Answers: Hi, the temple jar you own is quite beautiful. I would estimate it would bring between $1000-1500. at auction.
