Description

Small incomplete tripod

Tripod with a squat-globular body, no neck/collar, flanged rim, 1 horizontal strap handle on the body, and a tripod base. No molded/modeled additions. The vessel is painted with a white rim. 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 in color. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2207."
