Rare Chinese Tang Dynasty Pottery Fire Pit

China, Tang Dynasty, ca. 618 to 907 CE. This is a charming miniature model of a fire pit, hollow, mold-made in pottery. Hundreds of pottery figures like this one, recreating daily life, were carefully placed in the tombs of high-ranking people during the Tang period. After a mold was used to form figures like this into basic shapes, artists would then use scrapers and hand-modelling to give them their individuality.
