Description: Neolithic Chinese pottery, Majiayao culture urn. The first ceramics produced in China around ten or eleven thousand years ago were utilitarian wares and this early role for basic pottery has never diminished. However, long before the Bronze Age (ca. 1000 B.C.), fanciful thin-walled, painted, and burnished earthenwares, some of intricate shapes were being used as ritual vessels in various Neolithic cultures located along the Yellow and Yangtze river valleys. Some of these regional cultures include Ta-ti-wan (6000 B.C.), Pan-po (ca. 5000 B.C.), Miao-ti-kou (4000-3000 B.C.), Ma-jia-yao/Yang-shao (4000-2000 B.C.) Lung shan (3000-2000 B.C.) and Ta-wen-kou (4500-3500 B.C.).. Superb item in great condition, ideal for display and interior decoration. This item has been professionally cleaned to show original details, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
