Rare Chinese Neolithic Pottery Jar - Caiyuan Culture
This rare and unusually-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 is finely-potted with a wide body and two loop handles. The body stands on an integral foot that is pierced with three circular holes. It has a very smooth burnished surface. There are lightly-incised lines and small indentations around the body but strangely, bearing in mind the fineness of the vessel, these lines seem to have been quite casually made.ï¿½
Height 18 cm (7 inches). There are repairs and damage to the very fragile edge of the rim, but overall a lovely Neolithic pottery vessel in very nice condition.
