Annular bases; black with human head on closed vessel and connecting strap handles. The hair seems to be indicated in the manner of dressing of 26634.

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a double-chambered globular body, tapered neck, missing rim, 1 bridge handle extending from the neck to the body, and a ring base/foot base. The vessel has a modeled head with hat, ears, nose, and eyes on the top of the chamber opposite the neck. There appears to be a smoothed 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 object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1813."
