Fine "Set" of Four Chinese Han Dynasty Graduated Pottery Hu Jars
These four exceptional pottery "hu" jars were made during the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 8). They are made from a relatively highly-fired grey pottery, each having a distinct ring when tapped, and are of a particularly fine quality. The ridges around the waists, shoulders and necks are most unusual, and very "crisp". They also have "taotie" mask handles.
Dimensions, from largest to smallest: 1) Height 34.5cm, diameter 32cm. 2) Height 34cm, diameter 30cm. 3) Height 30.5cm, diameter 27cm. 4) Height 27cm, diameter 26cm.
They are in exceptional condition; the two largest jars do have a few minor chips to the rim and the "ridges", but none of these jars has any repair or restoration.
