Large Chinese Neolithic Pottery Tripod - Qijia Culture

This very rare pottery tripod was made some 4,000 years ago. Although similar vessels were made by various Chinese Neolithic cultures, we believe this particular example to have been made by potters of the Qijia Culture (c. 2050 - 1700 BC). The form is of a cooking vessel and the three wide udder-shaped legs allow it to be stood in a fire with as much heat as possible being transmitted to the contents inside the vessel. Such tripods are ...

A Rare Japanese Woodblock Print by Ikkosai Yoshimori. 1860. Edo Period  14 1/2 x 9 3/4 ins. (36.8 x 24.8 cms)  These designs showing foreigners observed in Yokohama-e are a fascinating sub-genre of Ukiyoe art. Contrary to the accepted view in the West at the time, the designs are deliberately naive and usually of satirical intent. The Westerners in Japan at the time were often arrogant and condescending to the Japanese and probably unaware that they were being laughed at behind their backs! ...

Fine Chinese Tang Dynasty Glazed Pottery Figure

This pottery figure was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is "heavily-potted" and made from a relatively highly-fired creamy-white pottery. The visible joins at each side show it was made in a two-piece mould. The body is coated in very finely-crackled dark yellow glaze.
