Han Dynasty Hu Jar

$3,500.00
This Han “Hu” vessel was buried in an underground tomb for the afterlife. Like many early Chinese ceramic shapes, the shape of this storage jar is based on more expensive bronze and lacquer prototypes. The wide mouth, the articulated rim, and the burnished red terra cotta of this example help date the piece to the Eastern Han dynasty.
