Neolithic Gray Pottery Jar

Longshan Culture (2900-1500 B.C.)
10” h. 10” d.w.

This matte gray ware shows a superb form with no chips and signs of restoration. Traces of earth encrustation are evident, as are a multitude of claw marks from small critters roaming over the jar while underground.

Authenticated at the Arts of Pacific Asia Show in San Francisco in Feb. 2004.
