IMO the answer should be B
A- the use of has is not required. The incorrect usage of from and up to.

B- I think is correct. Represents is correctly used for the singular subject- pottery. Additional from and to construction is also correct.
C- ‘it had’ is not required
D- represent is incorrect for the singular subject pottery . Incorrect from and until construction
E- unnecessary gerund (ing form) ... from and until is not idiomatic.

Official answer awaited.

Thanks

Please let me know whether the reasoning above is correct.
