half a black double vessel.

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a double-chambered body, hyperboloid neck, flattened rim, 1 bridge handle extending from the neck to the body, and a flat base. There are no molded/modeled additions and no decoration. 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 broken join between the chambers. No other numbers are visible on the object.
