Chinese Antique Han Dynasty Green Glazed Silver Jar, 1st-3rd Century



A country that existed more than 2000 years ago during the Han dynasty in China. What is called green glaze pottery has been made here. It is a pottery baked at a low temperature of about 800 degrees. When the lead glaze is baked at 800 degrees, it turns green. This was not used as tableware for daily life, but as a burial item. Such pottery was made only for those in power and high status. Why was it made? It was buried with a lot of pottery in the tomb with the hope that it would lead to a rich life in the world after death. And because it was buried in the soil for 2000, the glaze that was originally encountered in green changed chemically to silver. This is a very nicely silvered small jar. Larger sizes are relatively common, but such small jars are rare. As it is a soft pottery, do not pour water directly. Water leaks. The photo is taken with a black and white background. The impression is different, but I guarantee that it is a very good product. Also, as a reference material, we will post the green glaze pottery of the Han dynasty that is listed in the picture book. One is a large size with a similar shape. The other is silver glaze pottery. Measure: H 13.5cm.
