Plain black bottle, fruit form with stem cylindrical neck, one loop handle, body to neck

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an ovate body, cylindrical neck, flattened rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. The body is shaped like a fruit with stem on one side in relief. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in a reducing atmosphere as the surface is black and the interior is gray in color. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the interior of neck reads: "3120."
