ThiaPot1 Culture: PreColumbian
Ban Chang Pottery Vessel from Thialand - 3600 B.C.
Ban Chiang is located on the Korat Plateau in north eastern Thailand. It is the plateau where the discovery of thousands of years old pottery was found. Previously this area was thought to be an uncivilized backwater, although it actually possessed a highly developed culture that had a great impact on the whole region. The deepest levels at Ban Chiang can be dated to B.C. 3,600. The early pots are undecorated or have simple pressed or incised patterns. The ones from later periods are superbly shaped vessels of buff color clay decorated with swirling, fingerprint-like designs. Besides pots, Ban Chiang made many types of ceremics such as vases, jars, animal figurines, ladles, crucibles, phalli, spindle whorls and beads. Unglazed, low-fired pottery has been found at other sites throught Thailand. One of the major ones is at Ban Kao in Kanchanaburi province, north eastern of Thailand. From Ban Kao, the historians found distinctive earthenware pieces including tripod vessels with hollow tapering legs. Another site with particular fine examples was unearthed in the 1980's at Ban Prasat. Ban Prasat ware is typically in black or red clay. The pieces have less decoration than Ban Chiang, but the shapes are equally distinctive.

This vessel is 6-3/4" wide x 3-7/8's tall. It is solid with no restoration or damage other then an ancient pressure crack running from the rim. It has good color and size.
