Rare Chinese Zhou Dynasty Pottery Animal

This rare pottery animal was made during the Warring States period (475 - 221 BC) or possibly earlier during the Zhou Dynasty (1050 - 221 BC). It is made from a dark grey earthenware and, although not actually solid, it is particularly heavily-potted. It has been individually sculpted and exactly what animal it represents is open to interpretation, although its crudeness has a certain charm to it.

Length 22.5 cm (8.75 inches). Some surface wear and the front right leg has been repaired.

This animal is one of four, all reported to have come from the same excavation, that we are selling separately.
