Description

Pear-shaped body, expanding neck, one vertical ring handle on upper body, black jug

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an ovate body, hyperboloid neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle on the body, and a flat base. There is an applique band with incised geometric pattern around the join between the neck and 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. Fireclouding is present on the body and neck. Evidence of usewear includes surface attrition on the bottom/base. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "3309."
