Chinese Neolithic Painted Pottery Jar - Machang

This 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. The outer surface and inside of the mouth have been decorated with geometric patterns applied using two different coloured mineral-based pigments that have been fired on. There are two small loop handles joined at the shoulder and mouth. There are marks on the lower body left by "mineralised" growths from its long burial.

Height 13 cm, diameter 12.5 cm. Some surface wear and minor "nibbling" to the vulnerable edge of the mouth. No repair or restoration.�
