Chinese Han Dynasty Pottery Hu Jar with Cover

This fine pottery jar was made during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220). It is quite "heavily-potted" and relatively highly-fired. It has two raised bands around the waist with applied moulded taotie mask handles on opposing sides. The smooth burnished surface has a silvery sheen to it. Its moulded cover depicts two intertwined dragons. 

Height 24 cm (9.5 inches). There is minor chipping to the rim edge. A nice example in very good condition.
