Large Chinese Warring States Impressed Pottery Jar (475 - 221 BC)

Rare Chinese Han Dynasty Stoneware Bottle

This rare and unusually-shaped bottle was made during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220). This type of ware is quite different from many other Han dynasty wares and comes from southern China, most likely Guangdong province. Often such wares are coated in an ash glaze in various degrees of thickness. The darker patches on this particular vessel do appear to be as a result of a very thin layer of ash glaze, most of which has deteriorated.

This vesse...

Fine Chinese Han Dynasty Black Pottery Amphora

A superbly conceived design; jars of this general type have been found in excavations dating as far back as the Spring and Autumn Period (770-475 BC). Although perhaps not obviously Chinese in design, this type of vessel is one of the most iconic forms of Han Dynasty pottery and is thought by many archaeologists to be anthropomorphic, with the shape and "swirling" design of the main body based on the female human form.

Very Rare Chinese Western Han Dynasty Pottery Amphora

This rare and interesting pottery jar was made during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8), possibly a little earlier. Although many "anthropomorphic" examples are known (those with the "swirls" to the body possibly representing the female form), examples such as this are extremely rare (this is the only one we have ever seen), and unlike most other similar examples this has a flat base. Another difference is the lack of incised lines ...

Fine Chinese Western Han Dynasty Burnished Pottery Cocoon Jar

This superbly-shaped pottery jar was made over 2,000 years ago during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8). The shape, named after its similarity to the silkworm cocoon, evolved during the late Warring States period (475 - 221 BC) and then generally died out by the middle of the Western Han. This is a very nice example and has a finely-burnished surface making it very smooth to the touch. The surface colour is generally an par...
