Antique Chinese Glazed Stoneware Shipwreck Jar

Some time ago we bought a small group of jars of this type.

To the base of each jar is written an inventory number (we were told around 200 of these jars were excavated but how accurate this is, we do not know). Around the neck of each jar is a cardboard label (with a rusting metal eye commensurate wi...

This pottery model of a pigsty, complete with pig, was made during the Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 25 - 220). It is made from a buff-colored pottery and coated in a green glaze. The colour of the glaze varies and in places has acquired a silvery iridescence, a result of exposure to moisture during its long burial. Around the wall of the pig sty are seven purpose-made holes. The pig has been fairly crudely-made and is in the act of eating fr...

A Japanese Woodblock Print by Yonejiro Urushibara 1913 14 1/8 x 5 1/8 ins. (35.9 x 13 cms) The prints of Urushibara are not well researched at the moment, he is best known for cutting blocks and printing designs for Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956). However, he designed a number of prints himself of which the present design appears to be unrecorded. On the reverse is pencilled ".......(?) Urushibara 1913" and on the recto is one of his seals.
