Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jug with an ovate body, flaring neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. The vessel has a modeled face on the neck with ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. The facial features are painted in black and white and there is a design on the cheeks. There are incised and painted arms on the body as well as painted geometric designs in black and white. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. Fireclouding is present on the base and body. Evidence of usewear includes surface attrition on the bottom/base. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2838."
