Globular body, tapering neck; one loop handle shoulder to neck. Earthenware, with face on neck: a monkey with head in full and body in low relief, clings around neck of vessel
Narrow necked jug with a globular body, effigy-anthropomorphic neck, outward sloping rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. Possibly a whistling vessel. The vessel has a molded face on the neck, pressed into the mold from the interior. There is also a molded/modeled monkey represented clinging to the back of the figure. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange and buff in color. Evidence of usewear includes surface attrition on the bottom/base. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "258."
