Description

Black. With a face at base of neck which is missing.

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jug with a carinated body, missing neck, missing rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a ring base/foot base. The vessel has a modeled face with ears and mouth remaining. There are modeled ornaments in relief on the body and a necklace around the neck incised and decorated with punctate dots. 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 bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1922."
