Seller: howardturner (755) 100%, Location: Ridgefield, Connecticut, Ships to: US, Item: 253973794199 This rare piece of Indus Valley Civilization pottery was created at exceptionally high temperatures giving it much finer and far thinner walls than normal for pottery made by the rest of the Harappan culture pottery makers of circa 2600 BC. It was most likely made, research confirms, in the city of Mohenjo-daro in the Sindu Region of the Indus Valley because of their method of thin-walled firing and for its very simple design. From a historical perspective is vase was made before Stonehenge, the Mayan Culture, Egypt's V Dynasty were formed and at the early part of the Minoan and greater Mesopotamia Sumerian cultures This rare vase-form is decorated with a red slip over tan clay. It has black pigment decoration at its rim, on the shoulder of the vase and at its underside just above its pedestal base. The vase is 4" tall. about 3" wide. The neck is 1 3/4" long and flares at the rim. The rim is 1 3/4" in diameter. It sits on a small pedestal foot which is 1" in diameter. The clay on the base which has no slip has the smell of old clay. It is in almost perfect condition with very minor nicks on the rim. It has some earth deposits. It comes from what now is known as Artemis Galley Louisville, CO in 2004
