In recent years, Banchen pottery has been gaining popularity in Japan.
This product is a black pottery earthenware with fine line engravings densely engraved around the torso.
The age and format of this type of pottery are still unknown, but black pottery with intaglio patterns like this is said to have been made in the early Banchen period, around 1000 BC.
Wavy inscriptions are carved into the pottery, and wall-like fine lines are applied using a tool resembling a shell.
Good condition and recommended for collection.
