Han Period Hu Jar
sold

Sale - Inventory being renewed

This wonderful pottery with polychrome decorations dates from the Chinese Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), one of China’s golden ages. It is a Hu type vessel traditionally used as water or wine container.

The jar is in rather good shape. It bears a few scratches and a minute hole on the side (see picture 3). At the foot, the rim shows a couple of cracks and some fine hairlines running to the base (more pictures available on demand).

Please inquire if you have some questions.
