Chinese green glazed pottery granary jar with silvery surface, with cylindrical shape, decorated with bands of incised lines, and supported by three legs in the shape of bears.

The silvery surface is also called "mercury glaze". This silvery precipitation is the result of chemical changes in the lead glaze caused by prolonged burial in the tomb. Greenware became popular during the Eastern Han period.

Measurement: Height 31 C.M. / Width 17.5 C.M.
Condition: Nice glaze and burial condition overall (some glaze chips on the mouth rim). Please refer to the enlargement photos for more details.
