A beautiful Chinese ash glazed large pottery wine jar, also named Hu, from the Northern Wei Dynasty. The vessel features a flat base, from which its body spreads out to a wide waist and then tapers in again to the neck, which opens up to a large cup-like opening, with the rim modelled into a collar. Two couples of twin lug handles are applied on the shoulders of the vase. The vessel’s body displays a zigzagged pattern on one side, and some dark scattered markings.
