Chinese Neolithic Painted Pottery Jar - Machang

This pottery jar was made over 4,000 years ago during the Machang Phase (c. 2300 - 2000 BC) of the Majiayao culture, also known as the Gansu-Yangshao culture, from present day Gansu or Qinghai province. The outer surface has been decorated with geometric patterns applied using two different coloured mineral-based pigments that have been fired on. This particular pattern is very rare. There are two small loop handles joined at the shoulder and mouth. It is quite highly-fired, having a distinct ring when tapped. There are marks on the lower body left by "mineralised" growths from its long burial.

Diameter 14.5 cm, height 9 cm. Some surface wear, chips to the rim and a stabilised crack to the rim.
