Round bottom; flaring neck; collared. Plain. With a face on collar.

Face-neck wide mouthed vessel with a globular body, flaring collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a rounded base. The vessel has a modeled face on the shoulder with closed eyes, ears, and mouth. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior and a burnished 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 base. Evidence of usewear includes residue/accretions on the interior. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "686."
