Han Dynasty lead green glazed out house toilet. I imagine even in the afterlife you’ll still need one of these. This was part of a larger barnyard ensemble which would have consisted of a walled compound with a pig or two. In excellent condition, no damage other than where it was broken off the compound wall which you can’t see since it’s on the bottom anyway. This item will clean up quite nicely with a good soaking in plain old water and a soft bristled toothbrush should you want to expose the glaze more. H: 13.3cm5.2in and base dimensions are 7.1cm/2.8in x 11.5cm/4.5in. Note last enlargement for silver lead glaze patina.
