Each vessel with annular base and depressed body, neck cylindrical, bird on other vessel is over whistle. Black
Narrow necked whistling vessel with a double-chambered carinated body, tapered neck, flattened rim, 1 bridge handle extending between the necks, and a ring base/foot base. There is a modeled bird on top of one of the chambers with wings, tail, body, head, and beak. The lines in the tail are incised. The bird is the top of the whistle and has a hole at the bottom. 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. 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: "1202."
