Description

Flat base; beveled body; collared neck with everted lip. Two lungs on collar. Black.

Wide mouthed vessel with a carinated body, bulging collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. No decoration. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior and a smoothed finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in a reducing atmosphere as the surface is black and the interior is gray in color. Fireclouding is present on the body. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1936."
