Small Chinese Neolithic Pottery Ewer - Machang (c. 2300 - 2000 BC)
This pottery ewer was made during the Machang phase (c. 2300 - 2000 BC) of the Majiayao culture. Several examples of this general form are known, although this is an unusually small example. It is made from a relatively high-fired buff-coloured pottery that has been painted in a bold, yet simple, geometric pattern in a fired-on mineral-based pigment.
Height 12.5 cm (5 inches). This 4,000 year old pottery ewer is in good condition with repairs restricted to the vulnerable rim.
