This small earthenware pot is from the Hongshan culture. This culture is found in north-west China, Inner Mongolia to Liaoning. It is dated between 4700 to 2900 BC. The culture was only found in early 20th century, and I find different stories on that. It is mostly know for the jade pieces, and the Niuheliang temple complex.
This pot measures 9 cm, it is made from a red clay which is fairly high fired. The walls are relatively thick. There are four lug handles, on a low waist, which is a typical Hongshan shape. In the neck are two small (drilled ?) holes.
