Very good small painted Majiayao Neolithic jar, Machang phase circa 2300BCE–2000 BCE). Finely potted, and high fired- this is only 1 mm thick at the mouthrim. The colors are fired on and are still vivid and crisp after 4000 thousand years. There is some acceptable damage (IMHO), please view enlargements and probable small repair on the mouth rim. This came from a longtime collector in Hong Kong, please note that the sticker on the bottom is from a shop that has been closed for over 20 years. H: 9.2cm/3.6in and H: 9.4cm/3.7in.
