Ancient Chinese Han and Tang pottery


Our extensive collection also includes authentic terracotta pottery from the Chinese Han dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD); The first of the Four Great Imperial Dynasties of China and the first Chinese dynasty to leave behind a great amount of beautiful pottery, mostly in the form of burial gifts.

It was during the Han Dynasty that the famous silk roads was established.  These trading routes ran from the capital of Chang'an (nowadays known as Xi’an) to the east coast of the Mediterranean.  Because of increased trade in Chinese silk, African ivory and Roman incense, and improved travel safety, the contact between East and West flourished. All these influences of trading and travel led to great technical innovations and artistic refinements in China, such as the development of porcelain, celadon pottery and cobalt blue glazes. One of the most well known Han pottery are the Hu vases. Hu vases have a stylised S-shape based on the bronze vessels of the Shang dynasty, a shape still popular today! This means that these ancient vases do carry a modern look!
