Description

Body tampering to flattened base, neck cylindrical: two vertical loop handles on body. With a face on neck and painted design on upper body

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an ovate body, flaring neck, missing rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a flat base. The vessel has a modeled/molded face on the neck.
