Fine Large Chinese Warring States Burnished and Incised Pottery Jar (475 - 221 BC)
This fine large pottery jar was made during the Warring States period (475 - 221 BC). It is made from a fine-grained grey pottery and has a highly burnished surface, extremely smooth to the touch. Around the shoulder are many bands of lightly incised geometric patterns. The surface colours vary from black to shades of grey due to conditions in the kiln during firing. There are also areas of burial deposits on the surface in places.
Diameter 32 cm (12.5 inches), height 25 cm (9.75 inches). This jar is in exceptional condition; there is a surface chip to the shoulder, possibly caused during excavation, otherwise fine condition with no sign of any restoration or repair.
