Brown ware, fruit-shaped bottle with blossom on side, one vertical loop handle
Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-fruit shaped body, flaring neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a rounded base. The vessel is shaped like a fruit with a molded/modeled pedicel at one side. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere with localized reduction as the ceramic paste is gray and buff in color. Fireclouding is present on the body. The catalogue number is written in black ink on the interior of neck. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2792."
