Northwest of the Town
Compound vessel; globular pot below upon which rests an animal with feet tied; cylindrical neck with everted lip. Broken red clay jug. Curved side handle with broken whistle
Narrow necked whistling vessel with a globular body, compound neck, flanged rim, 1 hollow handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. There is a modeled/molded animal on its side included as part of the neck. The vessel is painted with red and white thick lines and circles surrounding the neck and handle. There appears to be a smoothed finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere with localized reduction as the ceramic paste is orange and gray in color. There is compound fabrication with internal chambers that may allow whistling. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2628."
