Description:  These three bottles, of course, are not in the typical Canton pattern but many Canton collectors have them in their collections. Grayish in color they are simply decorated, the larger bottle more refined. There are no rain cloud borders or bridges. As Jane Wilson says: “The decoration is often blurred and of the same quality as many late ginger jars.” She pictures 2 of the bottles on pages 40 & 41 in her 1977 booklet.

They are quite graceful and not unattractive. The top rims are brown. There are bottom rims and the bottoms are glazed. The smaller bottles are common but the large ones are considered scarce.
