Fine Chinese Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Granary Jar with Animal Feet

This tall pottery vessel was made during the Han Dynasty (206 BC- AD 220). It is made from a relatively high-fired grey pottery and is decorated with five incised bands that surround the body together with geometric and what are most likely cloud patterns in red and white pigments. The body stands on three moulded animal-form feet, the facial features of which have been picked out in the same red and white pigments. In places on the surface are the remains of ancient root/plant growths.

Height 28.5 cm (11.25 inches). There is no sign of restoration or repair; this granary jar is in fine condition.
