Price: $700.00
Short cylindrical body, short neck with a wide rim, the sides painted with colourful concentric romboid patterns, filled with net-lines and vertical bands. This type of fired clay vessel was mostly produced at the site of Merhgarh in Baluchistan. From here and other small centres, they were traded far and wide throughout Baluchistan, from the borders of the Indus Valley to south-eastern Iran. Examples of this pottery were also carried by merchants and nomads during their travels within the Indus Valley, and fragments have been found at the site of Harappa dating to 2800- 2600 BCE and possibly even earlier. The motifs painted include both geometric and floral and stylised animals. Yet, this type of pottery was no more produced after the beginning of the mature Harappan period (i.e. 2600 BCE).
