Chinese Tang Sansai Glazed Whistle - 618 - 907AD

The glaze has a very fine crackle. Under magnification, tiny pits can be seen on the fine crackle, which is consistent with the appearance of glazes for pieces of this period.

Size: Height = 3.9 cm
Condition: Good condition. No breaks. There's wearing of the glaze at the tip of the nose and has some spots where the glaze has worn off.(see photos)
