Large Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Glazed Buddhist Jar with Inscription

This large and impressive glazed pottery jar was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279), or possibly the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368).

Very Rare Chinese Song Dynasty Dragon Jar with Stand & Cover

This stoneware jar was made during the Song Dynasty (AD 960 -1279). We have had a few similar "dragon" jars over the years but it is extremely rare to see such a jar with not only a cover, but a cut-out bowl in which it stands. We have known that such items existed as there is one illustrated in a Chinese museum book (see above for reference). 

Such jars as this with an applied dragon around its shoulder are found in Sichuan p...

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).
