red ware; angular body; one vertical loop handle shoulder to neck. With a face on neck with engraved lines.

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jug with an ovate body, bulging neck, outward sloping rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. The vessel has a modeled and incised face on the neck including ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. 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: "1543."
