Rare Chinese Neolithic Tangwang / Xindian Culture Pottery Jar
This very rare pottery jar was made around 3,000 years ago during the Tangwang phase of the Neolithic Xindian culture (c. 1200 - 500 BC). The Xindian culture is a relatively late Neolithic culture and overlaps with the Chinese Bronze Age. Tangwang pottery is generally not as coarse in its construction as some other Xindian vessels. It is of fine form with a wide lower body and two long handles and a smooth burnished surface
Quite a large jar with a height of Height 22 cm (8.5 inches). Part of the mouth, mainly above one handle, has clearly been restored; the lower body and handle appear to be free of repair. There is a chip to one handle.
