Small. Red ware. Painted
Cup or 'qero' with a flaring body, no neck/collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The cup is painted with a white and red curvilinear design. There appears to be a smoothed finish on the exterior and a smoothed finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. Fireclouding is present on the body. The catalogue number is written in black ink on the interior. Black ink on the interior of vessel reads: "1908."
