Tall Chinese Han Dynasty Glazed Pottery Hu Jar

The body and neck are decorated with bands of grooves that encircle the body. On opposing sides at the waist are moulded taotie mask ring handles. What makes this e...

It is made from a dark grey pottery, relatively highly-fired, having a distinct ring to it when tapped. The inner surface has been painted with a pattern featuring three fis...

Priceless Past
$229.00
This is an extremely rare spear point crafted from pottery and dating at least to the Han period of ancient China (circa 200 BC). It could be older than that but I am having difficulty locating references on these items. Stylistically the piece is likely from one of the minority cultures in Southeast Asian and the only other ones I have seen were attributed to the Dong Son. An interesting attribute of these pottery points is that when suspended from a string they make a very melodic tone when st...
