Description

Small with slightly flaring profile and thickening rim. Cup or 'qero' with a flaring body, no neck/collar, flattened rim, no handles, and a flat base. No decoration. The vessel appears to have been smoothed with a rotative movement on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere with localized reduction as the ceramic paste is orange and dark gray in color. Fireclouding is present on the body. The catalogue number is written in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1784a."
