Tapering spout on back of spotted cat; bridge handle, head to spout. Leg off. Painted red-black-white
Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-zoomorphic body (shaped like a jaguar), cylindrical neck, missing rim, 1 bridge handle extending between the necks, and a footed base. The vessel is shaped like a felid (jaguar) and is painted and slipped with orange, red, black, and white slip. There is a painted design of black stripes and red circles outlined in black over the body. 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. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1808."
