Large Chinese Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Sheep Jar

This large and unusual pottery vessel in the form of a recumbent ram was made during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220). It has a thick cylindrical neck on its back with quite a wide opening. Possibly this vessel was used as a base for the pole of a banner or screen support. Traces of the original "cold painted" coloured pigments can be seen.

Length 41 cm (16 inches), height 18.5 cm (7.25 inches). Overall condition is good; there is some loss of pigment and signs of a repair to part of base where a crack has been stabilised or a part broken out and re-stuck.
