Antique-Chinese Late Tang Dynasty Amphora Vase-Shipwreck Find-circa 900A. D
A Handsome example of the period, features a wheel turned mouth and base with the neck being finished with a trio of Rungs which would have been used for looping with rope or similar for transport. The Amphora is largely covered in contemporary fossil preserved Sea Life of the Area including sponge, weed and what appear to be sea anemones and possibly tubeworms or similar. The Terracotta is largely Grey in colour now due to age and oxidisation and salt, structural condition is very good with no hairlines or cracks or otherwise making this to be a fine example.

The Amphora stands 38 cm tall and has a maximum body diameter of roughly 18 cm. The Amphora dates to around circa 900 A.
