This large storage vessel has a fine amber glaze (Hong tao, red pottery) on the upper body. It was made during the Tang dynasty (618 AD - 906 AD), when ceramic firing technology (both low-fired and high-) was developing rapidly. It was made in a northern kiln for daily use, but even such functional objects have a strong aesthetic identity that is typical of Tang culture. Size: h: 27.5 cm, dia: 20.2 cm

Diameter: 5cm. Condition: Intact and good with no repairs; normal wear to the rim.
