Description:
Redware with Bird Head/Wing

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jug with an ovate body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a rounded base. There are modeled additions depicting a bird with beak, eyes, ears, and wings. The features are outlined in white paint and the chest of the bird is painted on. There appears to be a smoothed 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 body. There is some discoloration of the paste, possibly from overfiring. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "3235."
