Fine Chinese Han Dynasty Burnished Pottery Cup

This fine & rare pottery cup was made some 2,000 years ago during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220), or possibly a little earlier. It is made from a fine-grained grey pottery. This inner mouth and outer surface have a smooth burnished surface making it a real pleasure not only to view, but also to handle. The surface colour of the pottery varies a little in places, a result of uneven conditions in the kiln during firing.

Height 7.5 cm. There is a small surface chip to the inner rim edge and in places to the inner mouth the burnished surface has "de-laminated". Overall though a lovely example with no restoration or repair.
