Description

Flaring. painted fragmentary

Cup or 'qero' with a flaring body, no neck/collar, rounded rim, no handles, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is painted with a repeated triangle design in red, white, and black. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior and a smoothed finish on the interior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange and gray in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2076."
