This beautiful wine vessel from the 1940s is made in the style of Tang dynasty san chai (three color) ceramics, with green, brown, and white glazes. It features a smiling elephant with an open mouth for pouring. The trunk curls up and is supported by a loop behind the elephant's head. The body of the elephant is green but the ears are brown. The elephant wears a harness colored with brown and green glaze. Perched on the elephant's back is a crouching man holding on to the neck of the vessel. The man's head is incised with facial features, but unglazed. There are no marks on the base, but the base does have a hole in it. There are no cracks or broken parts, but there are some minor imperfections in the glaze.

This vessel is 9.75" H x 10.25" L from lip to tail x 5.375" W. Weight = 5.41 lb.

Item ID: RL-54
