Fine Large Chinese Warring States Pottery Jar (475 - 221 BC)
This attractively-shaped pottery jar was made during the Warring States period (475 - 221 BC). It is made from a fine-grained grey pottery, relatively highly-fired, having a distinct ring to it when tapped. It has a flat base and the lower body has lightly incised lines around it. At the waist and above are several ridges and bands, within which are burnished lines forming geometric patterns. There is a depression around the bottom of the wide neck and a wide mouth with a roiled rim. In places on the surface are white "calcified" deposits from long burial, usually easily removed.
Diameter 25.5 cm (10 inches), height 21.5 cm (8,5 inches). This rare jar is in fine condition with no sign of restoration or repair.
