A beautifully preserved Han dynasty amber glazed lidded hu jar (221B.C.-206A.D) with the original kiln supports fully intact, located on the foot. The jar is free from any hairlines or repairs. The glaze is nearly and entirely intact, just slightly grazed in spots. It is extremely rare to find an amber glaze jar from the Han dynasty. It is even rarer to find one with its intact lid that is free from repairs. This is a very worthy and rare example that will enhance and add value to any serious collection of ancient Chinese art. This piece measures 18 cm high x 15 cm diameter (7" high x 6" diameter).
