Donated to The Mint Museum in 1937, this vase was one of the first examples of North Carolina pottery to enter the museums permanent collection. It is called a Han Vase because its form is based on a Chinese ceramic prototype from the Han Dynasty (206 BCE 220 CE). The glaze on Owens vase is similarly inspired by ancient Chinese wares.
