2 Cultural Revolution Rice/Grain Pots with Sunflowers

This two-pot set is a wonderful example of Cultural Revolution propaganda, hand painted and complete with the works of Chairman Mao, sunflowers, and a tribute to Chairman Mao. The idyllic scene with the sunflowers, works of Chairman Mao and a rising sun over the water must have been a truly inspiring vision for the owner of these pots as they contemplated everyday survival during the Cultural Revolution.

The tribute to Chairman Mao on the reverse is, "Loyalty to Chairman Mao Forever".

The pots are in very good condition and the ceramic outcroppings on the sides to thread a rope are all intact. There are no chips or cracks, which is unusual for these pots. The covers match the pots as well with the same sunflower pattern. The date of manufacture is 1968 and they were produced by the Shaoxing Ceramic Factory in Zhejiang Province. This is a fantastic set!

The pots each measure 8 inches (20 cm) high and 7.5 inches (19 cm) in diameter at the widest point. Shipping by FedEx.
