Buddhist grey pottery “lotus petal” offering jar circa 1200/1300CE with Chinese Zodiac, human figures and vajra impressed pattern. Excellent condition, no damage. This is from the independent Dali Kingdom which was centered in Yunnan Province. These were not used as “bone ash” reliquaries but were found in connection with tombs sometimes containing small offerings such as beads, gilt bronze objects or bits of paper with writing. H: 27cm/10.6in and D: 17cm/6.7in.
