Rare Chinese Tang Dynasty Painted Pottery Jar, Stand & Cover (AD 618 - 906)

This tall and impressive pottery set comprising stand, jar and cover was made during the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). They are made from a relatively high-fired grey pottery and "cold painted" in various coloured pigments. The stand has cut-out apertures and petals to represent a lotus flower. The jar has a band of "pie crust" decoration around its waist. The cover has purpose-made holes in its upper part; it is painted with lotus leaves and possibly represents a lotus bud.

Total height when assembled 48.5 cm (19 inches). The rim of the jar has been broken and fairly crudely re-stuck, most likely immediately after excavation. There are some losses and damage such as to the ends of the petals. Overall, a rare and impressive item in good presentable condition.
