Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Pottery Buddhist Lotus Jar
This interesting pottery jar was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), or possibly the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368) and has been been excavated from a Buddhist site in Yunnan province. It has been made from a relatively highly-fired grey pottery. The wall of the jar has been decorated with five lotus leaf panels between which are incised patterns, the circular parts of which have clearly been made with a compass.
Height 26 cm (10.25 inches). Although there is a chip to the inner edge of the cover, there is no sign of restoration or repair; this jar is in very good condition.
