Chinese Neolithic Cord Impressed Pottery Jar - Qijia Culture (c. 2050 - 1700 BC)
This pottery jar was made some 4,000 years ago by peoples of the Neolithic Qijia Culture (c. 2050 - 1700 BC), from what is now eastern Gansu province. They produced a variety of pottery vessels of many shapes and sizes. This particular example is of an unusual and attractive shape with its globular body, short neck and flaring mouth, and is made from quite a "gritty" clay. The body is decorated with repeated vertical cord impressions.
Height 14 cm (5.5 inches). As can clearly be seen in our photos, part of the mouth has been repaired, but still a nice example in good presentable condition.
