Chinese Neolithic / Bronze Age Twin-Handled Pottery Jar - Siwa Culture (c. 1350 BC)

This attractively-shaped pottery jar dates to the Siwa culture (c. 1350 BC), one of the later Chinese Neolithic cultures overlapping the Bronze Age. It has been fired to a very attractive orange-red and has a finely-burnished surface making it very smooth to the touch and a pleasure to handle. It has a wide body with a relatively small flat base. There are two loop handles joining the shoulder to the mouth which is of the form sometimes referred to a "saddle-shaped".

Height 12.75 cm (5 inches). Although not immediately obvious, the vulnerable thin edge of the rim has been sympathetically repaired in places; overall this is a nice example in very good condition.
