Northwest of the Town
Round bottom, globular body, short neck developed into birds head; one loop handle shoulder to neck. Band of impressed birds encircling body
Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jug with a globular body, bulging neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a rounded base. The vessel has a bird head on the neck including a beak and eyes. There is an impressed band of wavy lines ("bird" designs?) around the center of 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. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "3106."
