An extremely fine and well-preserved black-ware pot dating from the Chinese Longshan Culture period. The pot features a flat oval base, a single handle with thickened rims and central raised ridge ending in a top conical prick. The handle joins the body to the mouth, which is modelled with a pouring rim. One applied wire decorates the top of the vessel with a heart shape, part of it missing on one side. The item comes with its original lid.
