Tall Chinese Neolithic Qijia Culture Pottery Jar

This tall and attractively-shaped pottery vessel was made around 4,000 years ago by peoples of the Qijia Culture in eastern Gansu province, China dating from approx. 2050 - 1700 BC. It is relatively highly-fired. The lower surface has been decorated with repeated vertical lines whereas the upper surface has been burnished to a smooth finish. At the waist are two loop handles, with the surface of the body on the inside of the handles slightly depressed. It has a particularly wide flared mouth.

This is a large example of its type with a height of 31 cm (12.25 inches). Although this is a good example in good overall condition, there is some surface wear, mostly to one side, and a repair to the mouth.

For reference: we show an almost identical example from the fine China Institute book "Dawn of the Yellow Earth, Ancient Chinese Ceramics from the Meiyintang Collection" by Regina Krahl, a book we highly recommend (ISBN 0-9654270-3-X).
