Rare Chinese Neolithic Pottery Jar - Banshan / Majiayao Culture (c. 2600 - 2300 BC)
This very rare and unusual pottery jar was made over 4,000 years ago by peoples of the Majiayao Culture, most likely during the Banshan phase (c. 2600 - 2300 BC). It is made from a fairly unrefined clay and has been decorated with a notched rim and applied strips of clay. However, its most unusual feature is the three handles, spread equidistant around the rim, each of which are decorated with indentations and applied circles of clay.
Height 11.5 cm, diameter 13 cm. There is a stabilised crack that runs from the rim to the base.
