Description:
Black bottle necked with one vertical loop shoulder to neck handle. In shape of a bird, head missing

Narrow necked jug with an effigy-zoomorphic body, flaring neck, flattened rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The whole body is shaped like a bird with two arms in relief at the front. Possibly a whistling vessel. The vessel is shaped like a bird with wings in relief and two arms at the front in relief. 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. Fireclouding is present on the body. 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: "3301."
