Chinese Eastern Zhou Cord-Impressed Pottery Jar (770 - 221 BC)
This fine pottery jar was made during the Eastern Zhou period (770 - 221 BC). It is made from a relatively highly-fired fine grey pottery. It has a round base that has been decorated with cord impressions that are particularly crisp. On opposing sides of the shoulder are small square-cut handles. The neck is slightly ridged for additional decoration and it has a flared mouth.
Height 18.5 cm (7.25 inches). Condition is very good; there is a shallow chip to the underside rim edge but there is no repair or restoration.
