Small incasic bottle with pinnate leaf pattern
Narrow-necked jar/bottle (aríbalo, aryballos) with an ovate body, hyperboloid neck, flared rim with lugs, 2 strap handles on the body, and a conical (aribaloid) base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is painted white with brown geometric designs on the body. The neck is painted brown with white horizontal stripes. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2322."
