Large Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Painted Pottery Buddhist Jar

This rare pottery jar was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), or possibly the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368) and has been been excavated from a Buddhist site in Yunnan province.

It is made from a buff-coloured pottery and of globular form standing on an integral pedestal. The cover is elaborately decorated and there is a double-band of "pie-crust" decoration on the lower surface of the jar. The upper body has been incised with lotus leaf panels. It has been coated in a dark reddish-brown pigment on top of which have been painted lotus leaf patterns in various coloured pigments. Traces of ancient root/plant growths adhere to the inner surface of the jar.

Height 33 cm (13 inches). There is a chip to the edge of the base. No repair or restoration; very good condition.

This jar is from our own collection of Buddhist vessels from Yunnan that we have collected over several years and not previously offered for sale.
