These types of vases are referred to as "Tradescant" jars, named after the English botanist John Tradescant (ca. 1570-1638) who collected curiosities during his travels. An identical jar of this type can be found in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Wares of this type were made in kilns in Guangdong and Fujian and exported to South-East Asia, Indonesia, to the Philippines and to the Pacific Area.
