Fine & Rare Chinese Neolithic Pottery Bottle - Banpo
Fine & Rare Chinese Neolithic Pottery Bottle - Banpo (c. 4800 - 4300 BC)

This superb and very rare pottery bottle was made over 6,000 years ago during the Banpo phase (c. 4800 - 4300 BC) of the Yangshao culture. A simple design but certainly an item of beauty. It is "heavily-potted" and quite highly-fired, having a distinct ring when tapped. It has a fine burnished surface, delightfully smooth to the touch.  

Height 19.5 cm (7.5 inches). Close examination suggests a discreet repair to the edge of part of the mouth and a fine horizontal hairline crack to the lower body, not at all obvious. Overall condition is exceptional; a lovely example in fine condition.
