Very Rare Large Chinese Yuan / Early Ming Dynasty Blue & White Granary Jar with Cover

This extremely rare large jar, complete with cover, was made during the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368), or possibly the early Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644).

A Fine Pair of Large Chinese Han Dynasty Covered Pottery Hu Jars (206 BC - AD 220)

This imposing pair of pottery jars dates to the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220). They are made from a dense grey pottery and relatively highly-fired, having a distinct ring to them when tapped; this has helped them to remain in such good condition.

Rare Large Chinese Han Dynasty Burnished Pottery Amphora (206 BC- AD 220)

A superbly conceived design; jars of this general type have been found in excavations dating as far back as the Spring and Autumn Period (770-475 BC). Although perhaps not obviously Chinese in design, this type of vessel is one of the most iconic forms of Han Dynasty pottery and is thought by many archaeologists to be anthropomorphic, with the shape and "swirling" design of the main body based on the female human form....

Fine "Set" of Four Chinese Han Dynasty Graduated Pottery Hu Jars

They are made from a relatively highly-fired grey pottery, each having a distinct ring when tapped, and are of a particularly fine quality.
