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 have been decorated with "cold painting" designs featuring flower blossoms and geometric patterns in red and white pigments. Around the large stand are bands of "pie crust" decoration and three large cut-out apertures.
Total height when assembled 58 cm (23 inches). There are some losses to parts of the pie-crust bands, but no repair or restoration; very good condition.
