Warring states impressed pot

This beautiful pot dates to the Warring states. The pot has an impressed design from a cloth or matt. It is 18 cm high, and 20 cm across. The material is high fired grey pottery, built up in coiling technique, as seen in the inside. Warring states period is 475-221 BC, preceding Han dynasty. The pot has a high tone when tapped, because of the thin walls and high firing temperature, it is quite heavy though. These pots were made in Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Jiangxi, Fujian, Guangdong and Guangxi, during the bronze age.
