Flat red bottle with face on neck, two vertical loop handles on shoulder
Face-neck vessel. Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an lentoid body, cylindrical neck, rounded rim, 2 strap handles on the shoulder, and a flat base. The vessel has a modeled face on the neck with ear spools, eyes, nose, and mouth. 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. Fireclouding is present on the neck The catalogue number is written on the bottom of the base and black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "3233."
