NEOLITHIC Majiayao Vessel Ceramic Stone Age Antiquities Antiques Ancient China Chinese Archaic Stoneware Hand Painted Leaf Pattern Artifact - image 1 of 16

Here we have an exceptional Majiayao culture vessel or storage container crafted circa 2600BC

The designs are organic in inspiration painted in slip over the stoneware.

It measures approximately 7 1/16" tall by 7 7/8" wide by 7 1/2" deep (180mm x 200mm x 190mm)

This stone age artifact is intact and without repair. To the top rim a minor unevenness to the rim possibly a small chip or possibly from original firing almost five millennia ago. The slip decorations show age commensurate alteration as does the surface of the stoneware vessel with light concretions from burial. It presents beautifully.

We ship securely worldwide

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT 'FAKE' ANTIQUITIES AND ANTIQUES

Unfortunately, many items represented as authentic Antiquities are not genuinely ancient objects at all. Instead they are later reproductions, mostly of very recent manufacture, though a few reproductions of ancient objects are much older. Regardless of age if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely ancient then it becomes a 'fake' antiquity.
Likewise, if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely antique then it becomes a 'fake' antique.

It is always wise to deal with experienced and knowledgable dealers who are members of the governing international and national antique and art dealers associations. The membership process involves assessments of the dealer's reputation, industry experience, qualifications and knowledge. Only those meeting these standards are granted membership. Membership formally recognizes the dealer's expertise. Members comply with the associations' codes of practice and guidelines regarding authenticity and reproductions.
