Flat red flask with face on neck and painted arms. Two vertical loop handles, showing incasic influence
Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an lentoid body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, 2 strap handles on the shoulder, and a flat base. The vessel has a modeled face on the neck with ear spools, eyes, nose, and mouth. The facial features are painted white and black and there are two arms painted on the body in white and black. 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: "3095."
