Large Chinese Warring States Impressed Pottery Jar (475 - 221 BC)
This large and attractive pottery jar was made during the Warring States period (475 - 221 BC). It is made from a relatively high-fired dense grey pottery. The whole of the surface of the upper body has been decorated by impressing cord into the soft clay and then incising horizontal bands as the jar was turned; a simple yet very effective method of decoration.
Height 30 cm, diameter 28 cm. Condition is very good. There are a few "nibbles" to the vulnerable rim edge but there is no repair or restoration.
