Rare Chinese Sui / Early Tang Dynasty Glazed Pottery Stove
This extremely rare small pottery model of a cooking stove was made during the Sui Dynasty (AD 581 - 618) or the early part of the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 906). It is made from a relatively high-fired creamy-white pottery and, apart from the underside, is coated in a thin pale yellow/straw glaze. The glaze is very finely-crackled and in places has lost its shine due to it degrading during its long burial. The flat back of the stove is moulded with fire place and flames designs.
Height 12 cm (4.75 inches), length 8.5 cm (3.25 inches). As can clearly be seen in our images, the flat back has been broken and re-stuck.
