Highly ornate Terracotta Tang Dynasty Amber Sancai Tri-Coloured Jar with glazed coloured motives in relief decorating the body and a petaled floral decoration circling the shoulder. The lid is decorated with a figure of a bird perched on the center top and three green frogs in relief on the body of the lid.
This Sancai jar was more than likely a burial object (Mingqi), there are areas showing what appears to be calcification and the blue and green glaze has deteriorated. The tail of the bird has a repair and chip near the base.
