Large Chinese Neolithic Machang Phase Painted Pottery Jar (c. 2300 - 2000 BC)

This large pottery jar was made over 4,000 years ago during the Machang Phase (c. 2300 - 2000 BC) of the Majiayao culture, also known as the Gansu-Yangshao culture, from present day Gansu or Qinghai province. It is heavily-potted, relatively highly-fired and has a smooth burnished surface. On opposing sides just below its waist are two sturdy loop handles. The decorative pattern, a variation of the typical Machang hand (?) pattern has been applied with a fired-on mineral-based pigment.

Height 33 cm (13 inches). This jar is in exceptional condition with no sign of restoration or repair.
