Fine Chinese Neolithic Pottery Jar - Banshan / Majiayao Culture (c. 2600 - 2300 BC)

This rare and interesting pottery jar was made over 4,000 years ago by peoples of the Majiayao Culture, most likely during the Banshan phase (c. 2600 - 2300 BC). It is quite "heavily-potted" and made from quite a coarse clay, suitable to be used for heating its contents in a fire, as the sooty deposits on its outer surface would indeed suggest it was used for. It has one sturdy loop handle that is raised above the height of the notched rim. The upper surface has been carefully decorated with thin strips of notched clay arranged in a striking geometric pattern. The lower body has two horizontal strips of notched clay

Height 10 cm. Fine condition with no sign of restoration or repair.
