This jar, characterized by its graceful lines and uncluttered form, is a fine example of the pottery of the Yayoi period, which marks the first settled population in Japan. The combed incisions and flat braided cord are typical Yayoi decorations. The black flame mark is a natural occurrence in the firing process.
