Bowl Shaped with Foot
One footed Cooking pot (olla) with a tapering body, no neck/collar, flanged rim, 1 horizontal strap handle on the body, and a footed base. The vessel has a raised snake in relief on the shoulder opposite the handle. There appears to be a burnished 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. Evidence of usewear includes residues/staining on the exterior. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "31044."
