The Copper and Stone Age Pottery of Maheshwar-Navdatoli

Title:The Copper and Stone Age Pottery of Maheshwar-Navdatoli
Author:Sankalia, H.D.
Enumeration:Vol. 14 Issue no. 3; June 1961, p. 28-36
Abstract:Maheshwar and Navdatoli, overlooking the Narmada on the ancient highway from UjJaina to Paithan, had beautiful pottery through the 1000 years of their occupation (2000-1000 BCE). This comprised of various vessels for daily life: lotas and tambyas (small thin-walled water vessels) bowls (with or without pedestals), goblets, dishes, footed thalis, and the white-slipped and painted Black-and-Red Ware (both rare, and found in the early phase, upto 1500 BCE). There were also some unique forms new to Indian tradition: a kuja (large vessel with a long neck and flaring mouth) a round bottomed vessel with a long neck and funnel-shaped mouth, and a unique large bowl in pale red ware of the Malwa type. The painted designs include human, plant, and geometrical motifs.
