Chinese Western Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Ding (206 BC - AD 8)

This pottery tripod (ding) complete with its original cover was made during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8). It is made from a pale buff-coloured pottery that has been cold painted in a base coat of black pigment with swirling patterns on top in white pigment. The body stands on three legs, the tops of which have a thumb-sized indentation. On opposing sides of the body are two quite large square-cut handles. On many places to the surface are the mineralised remains of ancient plant/root growths from its long burial. 

Diameter 26 cm (10 inches). Overall condition is very good; although two of the legs have been broken and re-stuck, this is a very good and well-preserved example with much of its original pigment remaining intact.
