The painting on this is rather crude and while the pot has a pleasant shape, its execution isn't up to the standards of the good Qijia pottery. It is probably a very ordinary pot, it looks like a child decorated it in school as a Spring Festival present. Come to think of it, I am amazed that I have never seen painted handprints preserved from the Neolithic era.
