Rare Large Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Incised Buddhist Pottery Jar
This very rare and impressive pottery jar was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279) or possibly the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368) and has been excavated from a Buddhist site in Yunnan province.ï¿½The body of the jar has been decorated based on lotus leaves, with a mixture of applied and incised decoration. The elaborate cover has also been decorated with deeply-incised lotus leaf patterns. There are also faint traces of white pigment still present on the wall of the jar and underside of the cover.
Height 37.5 cm (14.75 inches). There are minor chips to the edge of the base but no sign of restoration or repair; fine condition.
