An extremely beautiful and a museum quality Han dynasty ear cup. This is a rare and an unusual and exceptionally big ear cup, make of red pottery. Such big ear cup with design motives is rarely seen and in such good condition. This piece was discovered from the sea. This accounts for the loss in the green glossy glaze, but a more mat green and whitish colour on the ear cup. It has both patterns and line motive design like clouds on the side and the base of the cup.
There are no repairs nor restorations. The glaze shows an iridescent mat green and whitish glaze. There is some expected degradation, chips & minor losses, abrasions, as a consequence of extended burial under the sea and subsequent cleaning.
The measurement of the cup is: Height 8.5cm, Length 17.4cm and Width 15.4cm.
