One large Chinese Han Dynasty (202 BCE-220 CE) funeral tomb duck. Low fired earthenware. Of unusually large size and well potted. Much of the original polychrome survives on the surface. The full body and well balanced proportions in combination with the scale make this an extremely rare example of fine Han pottery.

Provenance: Christie's London, 11 July 1996, lot 530; Collection of Bruce Dayton & Ruth Stricker Dayton, Minnesota.

Height: 15 in x width: 14 in x depth: 9 in.
