Incasic, with rhomboid pattern
Narrow-necked jar/bottle (aríbalo, aryballos) with an ovate body, hyperboloid neck, flared rim with lugs, 2 strap handles on the body, and a conical (aribaloid) base. The vessel is painted with geometric designs in red, white, and black over an orange slip (?). There is a knob at the base of the neck representing an animal head. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. Fireclouding is present on the base and body. Evidence of usewear includes residue on the interior. There are accretions on the interior, possibly residue. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2312."
