Globular body, flattened base; cylindrical neck. Plain with face.

Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an ovate body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. The vessel has a molded/modeled face on the neck with ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing and reducing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange and gray in color. There is mixed coloring of the ceramic fabric with patches of gray and red on orange. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "1903."
