Description:
Black jug melon shaped, expanding neck, vertical ring handle on upper body

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a globular body, flaring neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle on the body, and a flat base. The body has wide incised lines running vertically, representing the shape of a lobed fruit. There is also a band around the join of the neck to the body with an incised geometric design. 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. Evidence of usewear includes surface attrition on the bottom/base. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Traces of black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2803."
