Massive Indus Valley Bi-Chrome Pottery Chalice

South Asia, Indus Valley, Harrapan/Mohenjo Daro, ca. 2800 to 1800 BCE. An enormous wheel-thrown pottery chalice with repeated black striations highlighting the shoulder and upper end of the flared foot and several panels of diagonal bands just beneath the rim, all against a buff ground. The Indus Valley pottery tradition extends back to the Neolithic era with hand-made bowls, jars, and vessels of various earthtone colors such as red, orange, brown, black, and cream. The Harrapan and Mohenjo-Daro cultures introduced wheel-thrown pottery like this example. A special example presenting a grand scale and a gorgeous silhouette. Size: 10.5" W x 9.25" H (26.7 cm x 23.5 cm)

Condition: Repaired from several pieces. Chips to rim, expected surface wear, and nicks here and there commensurate with age.
