Description

Flat base; cylindrical neck. painted with a face on neck.

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an ovate body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. The vessel has a modeled face on the neck with ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. The body and face are painted in white and gray. There appears to be a smoothed finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1655."
