Ancient Bronze Age Indus Valley Pottery Painted Bowl Pot 3000 B.c. For Sale

Ancient Bronze Age Indus Valley Pottery Painted Bowl Pot 3000 B.c.

A rare ceramic -free of the deceptive overpainting that plagues the market in these objects.The piece is of typical, wheel made form, withflat footed base,deep body, circular mouth and everted rim. Thepot is decorated withbands of umber paint on a cream slip.

Thispiece dates to the Mehrgarh periods IV - VI, approximately 3500-2800 B.C. It is now believed that the pottery of Mehrgarh supersedes that of Mesopotamia in being the earliest known polychrome ceramics produced by Humans.

The little known Indus Valley Culture flourished throughout large areas of modern India and Pakistan in the 3rd Millennium B.C., along the Indus, a river arising from the snowy Himalayan mountains. When the snow melted in the spring, the river used to flood, providing fertile soil and the perfect conditions for civilization to develop. Public knowledge of this culture is almost non-existent in the west, largely because the major towns of Harappa and Mohenjo-Daro were only discovered at the turn of the last century. However, theseBronze Age people had knowledge of town planning, sewers and sophisticated architecture long before the Greeks and Romans. Indus valley artifacts are gaining popularity on the art market as collectors start to appreciate this fascinating culture and the imaginative art that it produced.

Do not confuse this piecewith the many overpainted and fake Indus Valley styleceramics that appear on the market, described as genuine. This is a fine and genuine piece offered at to promote the rest of our listings.

Height:3inches.

Condition:Very good,minor chips, no deceptive over painting. Age related encrustation. Unrestored.
