Rare Chinese Neolithic Pottery Footed Jar - Caiyuan Culture (c. 2600 - 2200 BC)
This very rare and unusually-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 two loop handles. The body stands on an integral foot that is pierced with three circular holes. It has a very smooth burnished surface. There are lightly-incised decorative lines and small indentations surrounding the body at the shoulder.
Height 18 cm (7 inches). There are minor repairs and damage to the very fragile edge of the rim, also to the the edge of the base, but overall a lovely Neolithic pottery vessel in very nice condition.
