Fine pottery basin from the bronze age Ban Chiang culture, Thailand, circa 500 CE or earlier. This is the only Ban Chiang pot I have seen with absolutely no damage or restoration. There are traces of ochre pigment on the rim. Include are two smaller pots that were excavated in Suphanburi Province, Thailand and corresponding period. All three were not thrown a wheel but were potted by coiling the clay and then molding it by hand. The Ban Chiang piece is W: 20cm/8in and H: 8.3cm/3.2in. The smaller pots are H: 5.5cm/2.2in and D: 9cm/3.5in, larger pot H: 6.2cm/2.4in and D: 9.5cm/3.8in.
