1st c. B.C. - 3rd c. A.D., Proto-Three Kingdoms Period

View larger Image

Seen here in inverted form, the red earthenware's seven incisions around the small hole at its base, flared rim for pouring, and oxhorn handles indicate its use as a steamer. The incisions form a simple flower design, and the work is further embellished by the crosshatched pattern covering the outside, and the horizontal double line spanning the two handles. A similar piece, sold by Kang Collection, is in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art.
