Small Ceramic Pot

This is an unusual item - a pint sized ceramic pot with very fine artwork with fantastic imagery. The girl on the bicycle is delivering the mail and the all important People's Daily newspaper and Red Flag magazine. The walled factories in the background show Cultural Revolution slogans of the day, with the ever present sunflowers in the foreground. Most unusually there is a chop from the artist.

The text on the reverse and cover is perhaps the most famous quote of the Cultural Revolution, 'Serve the People'

The pot measures 13cm (5.1 inches) in diameter at its widest point and 14.5cm (5.7 inches) high. It was produced in the famous Chinese region of Jingdezhen, and although not dated is certainly from the Cultural Revolution era based on the images and slogans on the pot.
