Description

Spherical body, slightly flaring neck with thickened rim. Red painted jar, two vertical loop handles on body, painted neck and collar on shoulder

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a carinated body, flaring neck, flattened rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is orange slipped and painted with geometric designs in white and black on the neck, shoulder, and handles. 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. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2856."
