Early Qing or made to look like?



Are there bubbles in the vitreous glaze layer above the blue decoration, especially in the band along the shoulder?
Not sure from when this is, but not likely early Qing. This was possibly made at Dehua kiln, as the worm traces show.
What bothers me is the dark interior. What is this dark matter?


I don't know Peter. The dark interior is just dark, don't know dirty or what.
I don't have a strong magnifier but seems like there are small bubbles.
If not wrong, you've said before that early Qing jars were fully glazed and then the neck was shaved. Here it seems like the neck was left initially unglazed.
