Pear-shaped body, slightly flaring neck, one loop handle shoulder to neck. Small with small projecting animal head on body opposite handle with four legs in low relief

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an ovate body, flaring neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. There is a modeled/molded animal head with ears, eyes, nostrils, and mouth. The animal has two limbs in low relief on either side. There appears to be a smoothed finish on the exterior and a smoothed finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange and buff in color. Fireclouding is present on the base and body. There are possibly fingerprints. Evidence of usewear includes surface attrition on the bottom/base. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2854."
