Material: orange earthenware pottery
Orgin: Longshan Culture (3000 BC - 1900 BC), China
Estimated Dating: ~ 2000 BC - 1800 BC
A very rare and unusual Pottery Gui Tripod Ewer with nail design from the Longshan Culture, that originated in the middle and lower Yellow River valley areas of northern China from about 3000 BC to 1900 BC.
Rather unusual is the spout's form of the Gui Ewer which is, compared to other archeological finds, oddly shaped. Later Shang Dynasty (1600 BC - 1046 BC) ritual bronze vessels commemorate the earlier Longshan pottery vessels, displaying a similar but elongated spout and overall design. So the conclusion might be made that this Pottery Gui Tripod Ewer is from the latter part of the Longshan Cultures existance or even from the transitional period to the Shang Dynasty.
Assuredly this Longshan Tripod Gui is a very nice Object in very good condition!
