China, 206 BC-220 AD. The compressed globular body surmounted by a waisted neck with a raised band at the center and a garlic-head top, all supported on a short foot. The recessed base with an engraved inscription, deeply encrusted and therefore only partially visible.

Provenance: German private collection.
Condition: Original condition, very impressive considering the age of this vase! Extensive wear, small losses, areas of erosion and weathering, and a fine malachite green patina with some encrustations.

Weight: 3,250 g
Dimensions: Height 40.5 cm
