Rare Chinese Han Dynasty Painted Pottery Model of an Ink Stone

This unusual and very rare pottery object was made during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220). It is a pottery model of a large ink stone. It is made from a relatively highly-fired fine-grained grey pottery with two sturdy "taotie" mask handles. It has been decorated with repeated geometric patterns "cold painted" in an orange pigment.

Width (handle to handle) 26 cm (10.25 inches), height 11.75 cm (4.5 inches). It is in fine condition with no sign of any restoration or repair and just a few minor chips to the rim edge.
