Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an carinated body, bulging neck, outward sloping rim, 2 strap handles on the body, and a rounded base. The vessel has a modeled face on the neck with ear, eyes, nose, and mouth. There are incised lines and punctate dots decorating the face. There appears to be a smoothed finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. Fireclouding is present on the body. There are striations visible on the exterior surface. The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "2133."
