China, 206 BC to 220 AD. Of compressed globular form, rising from a tapering foot to a waisted neck, the shoulders encircled by a band depicting a hunting scene with mythical beasts, dragons, birds, and two taotie masks issuing mock ring handles, all in high relief. Covered in a thick layer of deep emerald-green glaze, pooling nicely at the upper rim to form a number of distinct glaze drops.

Provenance: Prima Porta Antiquities, Galeria Sztuki Starozytnej, Warsaw, Poland, 15 April 2005. A Polish private collection, acquired from the above. A copy of a Certificate of Authenticity from Prima Porta Antiquities, dated 15 April 2005, written and signed by Dr. Matthias Renz, and confirming the dating above, accompanies this lot.
Condition: Very good condition with minor wear and manufacturing flaws, such as firing cracks, glaze flaking and fine cracks, few light scratches, the base with two drilled holes from sample-taking.
Scientific Analysis Report: A thermoluminescence analysis report issued by Oxford Authentication on 28 February 2022, based on sample number C122c62, sets the firing date of two samples taken at between 1500 and 2400 years ago. A copy of the report, issued by Oxford Authentication, accompanies this lot. A copy of an associated report from Antiques Analytics, Institute for Scientific Authenticity Testing, dated 11 March 2022, written and signed by Dr. Robert Neunteufel, accompanies this lot.

Weight: 3,624 g
Dimensions: Height 30.3 cm

In the Han dynasty, daily utensils were usually made of stoneware and goods for burial were made of earthenware. The hunting scene that decorates this vase suggests that the deceased was a nobleman, as hunting was a pastime of the aristocracy.

Literature comparison:
Compare a closely related green glazed vase with a hunting scene, dated to the Han dynasty (206 BC-220 AD), in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, accession number C.245-1909. Compare a closely related green glazed vase with a hunting scene, dated to the Western Han dynasty (206 BC-8 AD), in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, accession number C.1479-1924.

Important Changes to Our Terms and Conditions

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

For further reading about non-payers at auction, go here: https://www.zacke.at/aboutnonpayers/.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
  • A Guarantee Claim, however, can only be raised after the purchase price has been paid in full by the buyer and within 45 days after the auction day.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at office@zacke.at.

By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms of Auction and Terms and Conditions.
