The exploding globular body of this white jar bears a shape that is strongly identified with wares produced in the 9th century. That part of the glaze has flaked off is evidence that the glaze did not fuse well with the body, probably due to underfiring. White ware came into Southeast Asian markets only during the Song dynasty when silk, porcelain, and lacquer ware were traded in lieu of diminishing copper cash in 1291. White-glazed ceramics have since then been highly prized in China and elsewhere. There are other 9th century white wares from Hebei Province that have been found in the Philippines in small quantities.
