Globular body, small collar, neck ending in funnel mouth, ornamented externally with zigzag in relief. One vertical loop handle on body (missing), black

Narrow-necked jar/bottle with a carinated body, compound neck, flattened rim, 1 strap handle on the body, and a flat base. The neck is decorated at the top with an applied design of repeating arcs and the join between the neck and body is decorated with a plain band. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in a reducing atmosphere as the surface is black and the interior is gray in color. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink. Traces of black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "3310."
