Description

Globular body with neck or spout at an angle connected with head on top of vessel. Black.

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a globular body, missing neck, missing rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a rounded base. The vessel has a modeled/molded face on the top of the body. There are two raised and modeled ornaments on the body. 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. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1925."
