Interesting and very early Buddhist stone Jar, India, Gandhara culture, ca. 1st. century BC.

The Jar finely formed engraved with concenthric lines, flat base, in Chlorite stone. This never had a lid, but as part of the sale, we have also added a genuine stone lid from a jar of the same period, that actually fits the jar nicely.

Size: 8,5 cm. tall including the lid, ca. 6 cm. alone, a rather massive piece, impressive in hand.
