Long cylindrical neck and small loop handle on back of cat. Painted red-white-black, spots and zig-zags.
Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-zoomorphic body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a footed base. The vessel is in the shape of a felid (jaguar) and is slipped and painted red with white and black bands/stripes and spots. 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 in color. 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: "1803."
William Pepper Peruvian Expedition; Max Uhle, subscription of Phebe A. Hearst, 1897
