Bottle necked with two small vertical loop handles on shoulder. painted human figure in a high crowned hat.
Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-anthropomorphic body, cylindrical neck, missing rim, 2 lug handles on the body, and a flat base. The vessel is shaped like a seated figure and is painted delineating the features of the effigy shape in red, white, and black. 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: "2109."
