This vase from the 1940s is made in the style of Tang dynasty san chai or san cai ceramics, with a green glaze. The raised collar at the top of the body of the vase has three decorations equally spaced. The body has an incised decorative band around its middle. The base is mostly glazed except for a few spots. The photographs have been lightened some to make the incised decorations more visible.
There are no inscriptions or seals on the base. There are no cracks or broken parts, but there are some imperfections in the glaze. The vase is hollow inside. We think the vase had been buried to save it from damage because the vase was caked with clay. There are still some traces of clay on the vase.
This vase is approximately 9" H x 6" W. The base has a 3.25” diameter. Weight = 2.34 lb.
