Large thick rim sherd from a bowl (浅鉢). Elongated deeply incised motif between rim and carinated edge. Black to orange in color. The elongated and deeply incised motif might be compared to one example of the Tokoshinai 1 type illustrated by Douglas Moore Kendrik. Like the museum's example the surface decoration is not ideally controlled. The Tokoshinai type appears in the Late Jomon period and is found in north Tohoku region.
