Han Dynasty, Chinese Pottery Well with Dragon Heads

Chinese pottery well with green glaze, a tiny pavillion housing pulley on top, two dragon heads on the sides, and a bucket on the edge of the well. Drawing water from wells was an important daily activity in ancient China and this highly realistic model serves to reflect this aspect of life during the Han period. The last photo is the Han well in Asian Art Museum of San Francisco.

Age: China, Han Dynasty, circa 206 B.C. - A.D. 220
Measurement: Height 41.5 C.M. / Width 15.3 C.M.
Condition: Well-preserved old burial condition overall with some amount of soil adherings (some abrasions and wearings on the piece due to the long burial time underground). Please refer to the enlargement photos for more details.
Shipment: Worldwide shipping from Bangkok, Thailand at actual cost. Please e-mail us for the shipping fee.
