Small, red with bosses on shoulder and serpents in relief around neck, two vertical loop handles, slightly painted

Wide mouthed vessel with a globular body, bulging collar, rounded rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a flat base. There are raised bosses on the body, pushed out from the interior, two snakes on the neck, and two raised lines in high relief opposite one another on the body. The pot is red slipped with white geometric design around the handles. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange and gray in color. Fireclouding is present on the body. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2864f."
