Large Chinese Eastern Han Dynasty Pottery Pig / Boar (AD 25 - 220)
This pottery model of a pig was made during the Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 25 - 220) and has been excavated from Sichuan province. It is quite "heavily-potted" and made from a red pottery. It has its snout close to the ground, clearly sniffing for truffles, and a moulded curly tail ! To the rear of the underside is a large firing hole.
This is a large example with a length of 36 cm (14 inches). Condition is very good; there is, of course, some surface wear, but there is no obvious sign of any restoration or repair.
