Black Clay. representing a man seated wearing a hat with a pointed crown.
Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-anthropomorphic body, effigy-anthropomorphic neck, missing rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is shaped like a human figure with a conical hat, long braids, and face with eyes, nose, mouth, and chin. 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. 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: "1799."
