Description

Depressed body; flattened base, flaring neck. One vertical loop handle shoulder to neck. Black jug with incasic face on neck and arms incised on body

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jug with an ovate body, hyperboloid neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. There is a modeled/molded face on the neck with ears, eyes, nose, mouth, and chin. The arms are incised on the body. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in a reducing atmosphere as the surface is black and the interior is gray in color. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2836."
