Painted Grey Ware (PGW) pottery was finely made of well-levigated clay on a wheel. It is typically grey in color, thin in section and painted with black or red geometric patterns. The limited range of shapes includes a flat-based convex-sided dish, a small hemispherical bowl, medium and large flat-based straight-sided bowls and a vase (lota) with a straight-sided body, sharp carination at the shoulder and a straight neck. PGW represents the deluxe ware in a mixed ceramic assemblage of various fabrics and manufacture. These ceramic assemblages have been found in the Ghaggar and Indo-Gangetic regions and belong to the Early Iron Age in India.
