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. Fireclouding is present on the body. Evidence of usewear includes soot on the exterior. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2336."
