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.
Hongshan literally means red hill, and the pottery of this piece is red too, so is most other pottery found there.
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.
There is an obvious restoration in the neck, and some chips to the rim, and some cracks.
Most books do not mention Hongshan culture, and information is yet hard to come by.
