Splendid, glazed vessel. It is verifiable that this container served to store cosmetics in the burial sites of deceased women. Cylindrical form on three, zoomorphically executed legs and, on the sides, a frieze running around the vessel depicting numerous animals, some in lively motion, in a landscape which is most likely the Daoist heaven. Magnificent, deep-green glaze, in part with a fine silvery shine in the very well-preserved, still-fresh colours, dripping around the rim.
Dimensions: HEIGHT 17 CM
Condition: Good condition with some small glaze chips to the rim
Provenance: Collection of Herbert Keuper, Germany
