Chinese Han Dynasty Pottery Hu Jar with Dragon Cover
This fine-quality pottery jar was made some 2,000 years ago during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - AD 220). It is relatively highly-fired, has two raised bands around the waist with applied moulded taotie mask handles on opposing sides and has a flared foot. The smooth burnished surface has a silvery sheen to it. Its moulded cover depicts two intertwined dragons. Around the mouth are calcified deposits from long burial (easily removed).
Height 24 cm (9.5 inches). Condition is very good with no repair or restoration and just some minor "nibbling" to the edges of the foot and cover.
