Large TL TESTED Chinese Neolithic Caiyuan Culture Pottery Jar.

Pegasus Gallery Antiquities


A large Chinese Neolithic Impressed Pottery Jar  of the Caiyuan Culture.

This attractively-shaped pottery jar was made some 4,000 years ago by peoples of the Caiyuan Culture (c. 2600 - 2200 BC) and would have been excavated from the Ningxia Autonomous Region in the north of China. This fine example shows a scene with bird and what appears to be a dog.

It is quite "heavily-potted" and has been fired to a very pleasing orange-brown colour. 

A very large example at 44 cms.

China, Caiyuan Culture, C. 2600-2200 BC.


Ex. Private collection, Glasgow, United Kingdom.
