**First Time At Auction**
Central Asia, Indus Valley, Harappan / Mohenjo-Daro civilization, ca. 2700 to 2000 BCE. A squat terracotta vessel with a flat base, rotund body, corseted neck, and a petite flared rim. The exterior displays a decorative register of diagonal linear designs in larger diamond-shaped superstructures, with solid bands of jet and crimson pigment bordering the top and bottom of the geometric motif. The inside of the rim boasts a similar red-and-black color scheme, though the interior of the vessel itself is unadorned. A lovely example of some of the earliest styles of pottery produced in the Indus Valley! Size: 5" Diameter (12.7 cm).
