Rare are heavy potted three legged vessel with impressed chord pattern, from the first Chinese Dynasty. The Shang circa 1600 -1046 BCE, are acknowledged as the earliest Dynasty as they were the first group to keep a written record of themselves. This has a very thick wall and is high fired. A few minor chips on the rim but overall, in very good condition. Shang pottery is quite uncommon as you don’t see masses of items showing up in the market at once, compared to Majiayao, Qijia cultures etc. W: 14.5cm/5.7in and H: 11.2cm/4.4in.
