Turnip shaped body with bottom flattened; narrow everted rim; wide mouth; two vertical loop handles on body. Plain.
Cooking pot (olla) with an ovate body, no neck/collar, flanged rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a rounded base. There are no molded/modeled additions and no decoration. 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 in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1628-f."
