Black ware; one-half globular with long neck; the other half a standing figure.

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a double chambered effigy-anthropomorphic and globular body, tapered neck, rounded rim, 1 bridge handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. The vessel has a modeled female form as one of the chambers. The vessel is not painted but likely slipped. There appears to be a burnished 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. No other numbers are visible on the object.
