A large glazed pottery 'Hu' jar

Price: Price on request

Offered by E. Pranger Oriental Art




A pottery Hu jar with green glaze. The jar has a dish-shaped mouth, long cylindrical neck, squat belly and flat base. The body is encircled by incised lines. A pair of moulded monster mask handles adorns the shoulder.

The bands, animal legs and moulded monster masks commonly seen on Han glazed pottery are strongly reminiscent of earlier bronzes. The decorative techniques involved were governed by rigid standards.
