Rare Large Chinese Song / Yuan Dynasty Buddhist Lotus Jar
This very rare and impressive pottery jar was made between the 10th and 13th centuries, during the Five Dynasties period (AD 906 - 960), Song Dynasty (AD 960 - 1279) or possibly the Yuan Dynasty (AD 1279 - 1368) and has been excavated from a Buddhist site in Yunnan province.ï¿½
The jars stands on an integral foot and has been decorated with elaborate lotus leaf patterns, as has the cover.
Height 36 cm (14 inches). Some surface wear. Part of the edge of the foot has been broken and re-stuck and it seems likely the finial of the cover has been broken and re-stuck. Overall, an exceptional example of ancient Yunnan Buddhist pottery in good condition.
