Ming Dynasty Handmade Terracotta Bucket
Created during the Ming Dynasty in 17th century China, this water bucket was hand made from terracotta. Carved details enhance the curved handle on this round bucket whose use was primarily for carrying water. The piece was made from natural terracotta and ensuing four centuries have left it with a beautiful patina.
This 17th century hand made Ming Dynasty Chinese terracotta water bucket would be an uncommon decorative item in any room, perhaps acting as a home for a hanging plant in a kitchen.
