Northwest of the Town
Black jug, broken, disintegrated, monkey figure forming handle
Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-fruit shaped body, missing neck, missing rim, 1 effigy-zoomorphic handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. The vessel is shaped like a melon with a monkey standing on the shoulder and holding the neck, serving as the handle. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in a reducing atmosphere as the surface is black and the interior is gray in color. The catalogue number is written in black ink on the interior. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2804."
