Description

Painted rectilinear meander. Beveled base, insloping side, everted lip, two horizontal loop handles

Deep bowl or 'Cazuela' with a squat body with inverted walls, no neck/collar, flanged rim, 2 horizontal strap handles on the body, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel has an orange slip and is painted with geometric designs around the body in red, white, and black/brown. The rim is painted red. 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: "2346."
