Ancient Southeast Asian Ban Chiang Pottery Vesslels

Ban Chiang is considered the most important prehistoric settlement so far discovered in Southeast Asia. It presents possibly the earliest evidence of farming and complex metallurgy in the region. These three vessels, dating to the 2nd-1st Millennium BC, are typical of works from this site. Thickly potted, sometimes painted and sometimes incised and burnished, they often show characteristic curvilinear or geometric decoration. These three examples are of black burnished ware, confidently potted and sturdy pieces with striking form.

It’s rare to find three vessels of similar type, in very good condition and with a good provenance.
