Fine & Rare Chinese Neolithic Painted Pottery Jar - Machang (c. 2300 - 2000 BC)
This twin-handled pottery jar was made over 4,000 years ago during the Machang Phase (c. 2300 - 2000 BC) of the Majiayao culture, also known as the Gansu-Yangshao culture, from present day Gansu or Qinghai province. It is relatively highly-fired, having a distinct ring when tapped. The outer surface and inner mouth have been decorated with geometric patterns using fired-on mineral-based pigments of black and purple. Around the rim are 13 small drilled holes, 6 on one side, 7 on the other. Although not entirely unknown, this is a very rare feature of such Machang jars.
Diameter 13.25 cm (5 inches). Height 8 cm (3 inches). No restoration or repair; fine condition.
