Round bottom, sharp shoulder, flaring neck; two vertical loop handles on body. Engraved. With a face and punctate ornament neck.

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an carinated body, flaring neck, rounded rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a rounded base. The vessel has a modeled face on the neck including ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. The neck is also decorated with incised lines and punctate dots. 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. Fireclouding is present on the body. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1651."
