Description

Flat base beveled, body contracting to wide mouth with everted lip; two horizontal loop handles on body, red ware, painted in lines of white, black and red.

Deep bowl or 'Cazuela' with a squat body, no neck/collar, flanged rim, 2 horizontal strap handles on the body, and a rounded base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is painted with white, black, and red lines on an orange slip. 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 in black ink. Pencil mark on the bottom of the base reads: "2866."
