Fine & Very Rare Chinese Neolithic Pottery Ewer - Qijia Culture
This fine pottery vessel was made around 4,000 years ago by peoples of the Neolithic Qijia Culture (c. 2050 - 1700 BC), from what is now eastern Gansu province, China. They produced a variety of pottery vessels including cord-impressed pottery of many shapes and sizes as well as finely-burnished jars. Vessels such as this with a partially covered top and a spout are particularly rare. Furthermore, this example has incised and impressed decoration to the top and upper part of the handle. It is relatively highly-fired, having a distinct ring to it when tapped.
Height 14 cm. There is no sign of restoration or repair. This very rare vessel is in exceptional condition.
