A lovely water pot was finely mold.
Being beautifully decorated on the surface with colorful splashes, the water pot was authenticated as an archaic piece from Changsha kiln of Tang dynasty.
By a very fine condition of the glaze, the porcelain item was justified as a sought-after piece when most of the items found were in poor condition by severe degradations.
From the form of the shape and the sturdy body clay, we would credit it as a practical scholar item used in the ancient time. It furthermore strengthened its value.
One similar piece with San-cai decoration was from the Arther M. Sackler Collection.
Another good example was from a Chinese scholar book.
Date: Tang Dynasty,(618-907),
