Description

Round bottom, body with two conical bosses on opposite shoulder, tapering neck, one loop handle shoulder to neck. Black jug, plain

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an ovate body, tapered neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a rounded base. The shoulder of the vessel is shaped with two raised conical or pyramidal projections facing up. There is an added small ovoid piece of clay on the shoulder that has incised lines in it. 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: "2805."
