Rare Chinese Neolithic Pottery Jar - Caiyuan Culture (c. 2600 - 2200 BC)
This attractively-shaped pottery jar was made some 4,000 years ago by peoples of the Caiyuan Culture (c. 2600 - 2200 BC) and has been excavated from the Ningxia Autonomous Region in the north of China. It is finely-potted with a wide body and one handle from the shoulder to the wide flared mouth. The smooth burnished surface makes this vessel a pleasure to handle as well as to view.
A good size with a height of 16 cm (6.25 inches), diameter 19 cm (7.5 inches). Although not immediately obvious, there are some small repairs to the edge of the very vulnerable rim, but overall a lovely Neolithic pottery vessel in fine condition.
