Description

Painted

Cooking pot (olla) with a squat-globular body, hyperboloid collar, outward sloping rim, no handles, and a rounded base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is painted with geometric designs on the upper section of the body and collar in white, red, orange, and black. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange and gray in color. Fireclouding is present on the body. The catalogue number is written on the interior of collar. Pencil on the interior of collar reads: "1161n."
