Large Chinese Neolithic Pottery Jar - Caiyuan Culture (c. 2600 - 2200 BC)

This attractively-shaped pottery jar was made over 4,000 years ago by peoples of the Caiyuan Culture (c. 2600 - 2200 BC) and has been excavated from the Ningxia Autonomous Region in the north of China. It has a wide body and a wide flared mouth. The upper surface has been burnished and is smooth to the touch. The lower surface is covered in a lightly combed decoration.

Height 35 cm (13.75 inches), diameter 31.5 cm (12.25 inches). There is minor surface wear and a small repaired chip to the edge of the rim. A larger example of Chinese Neolithic pottery in fine condition.
